More than just a track sponsor, Securiport will play an active role in the 24th Annual AVSEC World Conference by contributing to the Border Security discussion panel. During Day 2 of the conference, Securiport CEO. Dr. Enrique Segura will be sharing views on how States can ensure the security of their territory as threats constantly emerge from terror groups and border crossings. Other discussions will include Emerging Threats, Foreign Fighters and Armed Conflicts.
This year’s AVSEC World theme is “Risk Management: Collaborate. Coordinate. Communicate.” According to IATA’s CEO and Director General, Tony Tyler, “Aviation risk management now faces greater challenges than in any previous era. Cyber security, conflict zones, drones, pilot health, and foreign fighters are just a few of the issues.” And in order to adequately respond to these emerging threats, Tyler suggests that “traditional risk management approaches need to be supplemented by a new mindset of cooperation and collaboration.”
