Shifting the paradigm of airport security

Issue 2 2013 / 4 April 2013 /

TSA Administrator, John S. Pistole, provides an insight into how the Transportation Security Administration is transforming airport security.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) continues its transformation from an organisation that screens every passenger in the same ‘one size fits all’ way, to a risk-based, intelligence-driven model. The TSA uses the latest technology, analyses and shares intelligence in real-time, and applies the principles of risk-mitigation and riskmanagement to carry out its mission to safeguard the free movement of people and commerce across all modes of transportation. It is an evolution we began in earnest in late- 2011, deploying several new initiatives and modifying some of our existing security screening protocols to more closely reflect this commitment to risk-based security. In large part, the operational changes I referenced can already be seen in many of the United States’ busiest airports. In the latter half of 2011, we began looking at additional information to help us determine if there were certain age-based decisions we could make. In other words, did current intelligence indicate the possibility of modifying our security screening protocols to expedite the movement of some passengers through the checkpoint based solely on their age?
