Securiport Shares Strategic Border Security Solutions at the 2017 World Border Security Congress

Securiport, the global leader in intelligent immigration controls and civil aviation security solutions, was pleased to present at this year’s exclusive World Border Security Congress in Casablanca, Morocco.

The World Border Security Congress is a multidisciplinary meeting of the world’s senior policy makers, practitioners and players. Securiport proudly joined this year’s forum where key attendees discussed and debated the current and future issues facing the border management, security and migration management sector.

This year’s conference focused on developing strategic border management resolutions and solutions. The past few years have seen the largest displacement and movement of people since World War II. The Middle East warring factions creating mass refugee movements across Europe, illegal economic migrants from Africa and Asia creating increased challenges for the international border management and security community. The rise of ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hamas, Al Shabaab, the Taliban, and other terrorist groups creating cross border threats to national and international security.  Plus, organized crime continues to move drugs and people through over-exposed and under-monitored borders.  

In its opening notes, World Border Security Congress emphasized that despite the expansion of international agreements in Europe and Asia, no part of the world is immune from border penetration. Due to the wide range of threats, governments need to continue to invest in their border security, such as combating terrorism, controlling the movement of goods, and monitoring personnel across international borders. Reducing the number of unsecured international borders will remain a top priority for border security in the immediate and long-term.

Dr. Attila Freska, Securiport’s chief operating officer, shared his security firm’s expertise and insights on “The Border Security Paradigm” during a strategic panel discussing solutions for External and Internal Land Border Challenges. The panel explored how external land borders provide unique challenges in the fight against cross border organized crime, human trafficking, smuggling and mass migration. Yet internal land borders, such as airports and ports, are becoming an increasing focus of terrorist threat or illegal travelers using fraudulent travel documents. The panel explored the latest global challenges and how strategies and technologies help deliver a more secure border.

Freska is a recognized expert in the use of biometrics and predictive information systems for aviation security, immigration control, and border security management applications. He is regularly invited to speak on security matters at conferences, including INTERPOL, International Air Transport Association (IATA), and Airports Council International (ACI).

Prior to joining Securiport, Freska held senior management positions with prestigious companies, such as Johnson & Johnson, Deloitte Consulting, Owens-Illinois, and most recently American Capital. He has also started a number of entrepreneurial ventures, and has supported numerous non-profit endeavors.

The World Border Security Congress is supported by the Ministry of Interior of Morocco, Organization for Security & Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), European Association of Airport & Seaport Police (EAASP), International Security Industry Organization, National Security & Resilience Consortium and International Association of CIP Professionals, and is the premier multi-jurisdictional transnational platform where the border protection, management and security industry policy-makers and practitioners convene annually.

Securiport Shares with Frontex and EU Member State Experts How Analytics-Driven Integrated Immigration Control Systems Can Maximize Aviation Security in Europe

Securiport, a global leader in the civil aviation and passenger security systems, reported that it has recently presented its intelligent analytics-driven solutions and conceptual management approach for improved integrated immigration control at the Frontex Workshop on innovative technologies, applications, and products for border security. The mission of Frontex – the European Border and Coast Guard Agency – is to promote, coordinate and develop European border management in line with the EU fundamental rights charter and the concept of Integrated Border Management. While the responsibility for the management of the external borders remains primarily with the Member States, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency supports border control at land, air and sea borders by reinforcing, assessing and coordinating actions of member states at the external borders of the European Union. It coordinates the deployment of technical equipment (vessels, helicopters and boats) and specialized border guards to those EU countries which face an increased migratory pressure.

The workshop, which was held for high-level European security officials was led by Securiport’s Dr. Attila Freska, COO, and Mr. Nathan Carpenter, Chief Software Architect, who showcased the need to leverage a combination of current best practices and emerging 21st century technologies such as machine learning, pattern detection, and advanced threat modeling to ensure the safety of arriving and departing passengers at airports and predictively forecast local and transnational criminal activities, including generating profiles on potential offenders. Securiport shared the approaches that its researchers and engineers are using to develop big data solutions for advanced near-real-time threat modeling, detection, assessment, and remediation.

Securiport discussed how its Integrated Immigration Control System (IICS) provides tools in support of current best practices, enabling decision support for the immigration officer driven by travel document validation, identity fraud detection, checking against Interpol and local watchlists, and multi-modal traveler biometric analysis. Immigration officers and supervisors are presented with a cohesive picture of all travelers moving across the border, whether through manned posts or through Securiport’s Automated Border Control eGates. Securiport maximizes traveler experience while providing the officers with warnings when a possible threat is detected.

Securiport showcased how its Intelligent Information Management System (IIMS) enables expert-driven threat detection, allowing integration of immigration, governmental, open source, and unstructured data into virtual data sets that create a basis for analysis. Experts can create rules-driven profiles against these virtual data sets to analyze and identify Persons of Interest (POIs). These rules then inform the authorities when POIs are traveling and provide additional decision support information to the officers monitoring the immigration or border control system. A small number of experts can, therefore, support a large number of immigration officers – a 21st century solution.

Securiport, Global Leader in Intelligent Immigration Controls and Aviation Solutions, Shares Proven Innovative Solutions & Strategic Insights with African Airports Council International (ACI)

Securiport. a global leader in intelligent immigration controls and aviation solutions, has recently presented its innovative solutions and domain expertise in helping nations protect their border security and migration challenges during complex times, to the Airport Council International (ACI)-Africa conference, which was held from 8 to 15 April 2016 in Cairo, Egypt.

 

Dr. Attila Freska, Securiport’s Chief Operating Officer, has shared his company’s proven track record in securing Africa airports, in a panel focused on safety and security to support the development and sustainability of the business. The expert discussion featured panel luminaries such as the TSA’s regional director for Africa and the Middle East, IATA’s Vice President for Africa, and the Airport Council International. When Securiport decided to be a Diamond Sponsor for the Conference, Freska stated, “With recent global events, Africa is intricately connected to the global security issues that we all face. It is pivotal that we contribute innovation and practical solutions to the improvement of a secure, safe and sustainable development of aviation in Africa.”

Dr. Attila Freska is recognized expert in the use of biometrics and predictive information systems for aviation security, immigration control and border security management applications. Dr. Freska is regularly invited to speak on security matters at conferences sponsored by organizations, including INTERPOL, International Air Transport Association (IATA), and Airports Council International (ACI).

Attended by the largest aviation security in the region, the theme of the conference was “Economic Sustainability of African Airports: Challenges and Opportunities” and sessions focused on the challenges of the economic development and sustainability of air transport in Africa, the enhancement of airport commercial revenues and the safety and security needed to support this development.

The Airports Council International (ACI) is a not-for-profit organization representing commercial airports worldwide. Its structure includes five geographical regions: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and North America. This strategic plan is concerned with the African region.

ACI-Africa was established as a region of ACI in 1991, in conformity with ACI rules. The internal rules of the region were amended and updated at the 23rd ACI Africa Regional Annual General Meeting, Conference and Exhibition in Durban, in October 2014. ACI-Africa does not have a legal status separate from ACI to which organization the region is an integral part. However, as a region, ACI-Africa like the other ACI regions is self-governing under its own regional internal rules.

Securiport Presents Innovative Approach to Effective Migrant Control at IATA’s Wings Of Change In Santiago, Chile

Dr. Attila Freska, Chief Operating Officer of Securiport LLC, has recently presented Securiport’s unique approach to effectively strategizing the border security paradigm at the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Wings of Change (WoC) 2016 event in Santiago, Chile. Dr. Freska’s presentation specifically examined the three strategic security imperatives that governments and global security leaders should implement. In an age of porous borders and global radicalization, the need for solutions to control these frontiers has never been greater. Securiport also sponsored the panel on Infrastructure: looking towards the next 10 years.

There have been so many recent events, such as the attacks in Paris, Ankara and Brussels that involve verifying identities of suspicious individuals and discovering their true intentions. Dr. Freska talked about the common shortcomings in verification analysis, and how more often than not individuals with less than the best intentions go undetected. The crossing of borders, use of stolen or forged travel documents, inadequate screening protocols, limited or lack of biometric tools, no real-time checks against Interpol databases, and ineffective use of big data analytics are just a few examples.

“The new border security paradigm for effective migrant control,” said Dr. Freska, “needs to correct three damaging processes: overall lack of real-time checks, no use of available technology and recognizing that every nation, every government, every threat assessment is different and security measures need to be integrated with the unique behaviors of local law enforcement and culture in mind.”

In the absence of any one of the elements in this complex paradigm, there are gaps that transnational criminals and terrorist organizations will exploit.

The Wings of Change event brings together the leaders of the air transport industry in Latin America; aeronautical and political authorities, airline and airport executives, regulators, service providers and tourism authorities, to discuss the opportunities and challenges of the aviation industry. Top industry issues covered at the conference included regulatory challenges, end-to-end passenger experience, new distribution trends, infrastructure, key industry suppliers and regulatory issues.
