Airport / Aerospace Systems and Cyber-security

Paul Irving

From: Innovative technologies for physical and cyber security
Thales UK, Manor Royal, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 9HA

Security in all its forms is becoming an increasingly important part of our lives. We accept it, usually as a necessary inconvenience. For example, each year airport security hit the headlines. We all understand the need for it but that doesn't reduce the stress and frustration of standing in queues, perhaps for hours, having to remove and replace clothing and ensuring we don't have liquids or sharp objects. Airports get frustrated as well as they want us spending money, not queuing!
Equally, whenever we want to access our bank account, order something online, or simply check a credit card bill, we have to negotiate a labyrinthine network of passwords, yet still cyber fraud is increasing.
We all want the benefits of security but not the delays and problems. Technology is coming to help so, in the future, queues may be quicker and computer access will be easier without any compromise of security. This seminar will look at how newly developed technologies may help us in the future with a focus on the physical and cyber security of airports and will include demonstrations of display equipment.
