A holistic approach to airport security in the evolving airspace.

Roni Tidhar, Israel Airports Authority’s Head of International Consulting Services – Commercial branch, discusses how airports must consider and adapt their security procedures in the evolving airspace.

Why does the Israel Aviation Authority suggest a holistic approach in regard to airport security?

An international airport needs high standards in efficiency, operational time framework, safety and liability. This complexity requires solid security foundations: A comprehensive holistic security array. This can only be achieved with a holistic approach concept, meaning all security components need to be under the responsibility of one jurisdiction. In our case, Ben-Gurion International Airport security division is responsible for all security programmes.

But we cannot forget about cyber-security: We have a Ground Operation division that operates the airport’s emergency plan. The divisions influence each other, sharing threat mitigation, methods and knowledge, and coordinate to supply a quick first response and allow operational flexibility to gain high-resolution security achievements. We believe that responsibility equals authority, so we must have the skillset and legal infrastructure to act with.

Israel Airports Authority (IAA) invests heavily, but supports a very good beneficiary business environment, so we are successfully self-financed.
