Amsterdam, NL - April 19, 2022 -
It is quite a challenge to create a single institution with absolute power that is accountable for overseeing all the safety functions at an airport owing to the intricacy of airport communities in which numerous organizations have various duties. It is normally recognized that the main parties answerable for aviation security actions at an airport are the civil aviation specialist within the government organization, the police, the airport operative, and the aircraft operators who have agreements with security companies. Moreover, there are many categories of security responsibilities at airports such as checked baggage security control, passenger security screening, access control to delimited areas, and cargo and mail safety.
Integration of security systems is proving challenging at all levels. At the organizational level new technologies have implications on future recruitment, training, and workforce structures. From a wider security perspective there remains a divide between cyber and physical security within organizational structures, a separation not recognized by those seeking to disrupt our operations. Finally, we see at a screening level, particularly with mass public screening landside, a need for a better understanding of how different technologies, processes and skills should be integrated together for best effect.
The expansion of loyalty programs has now created new vulnerabilities for airlines, and chances for criminals to gain access to genuine customers’ accounts through phishing campaigns, hacking weak login credentials, or even by compromising a less-than-reliable internal employee. Once they gain access to an account, there are a number of ways that swindlers take advantage of loyal customers’ earned airline miles or points. The most unswerving method is to use stolen miles or points to purchase tickets. Once purchased, these tickets can either be used by the swindlers themselves or sold to a third party. Once they’ve traded the tickets for cash, the swindler is in the clear. Either the gullible purchaser or the carrier will bear the loss.
