Global Aviation Security Symposium 2019

The SkyLive Stream of AVSEC2019 is brought to you by MSA Security - www.msasecurity.net

​​In September 2019 ICAO convened its third annual​ Global Aviation Security Symposium (AVSEC2019) at ICAO Headquarters in Montréal, Canada. AVSEC serves as a platform to promote the work of ICAO, its Member States and stakeholders in the area of aviation security. AVSEC brings together aviation security professionals from around the globe to advance the cultivation of a new mind-set towards aviation security, one that embraces AVSEC as a culture beyond a set of standards. It also strategically enhanced international cooperation and collaboration to address the threat posed by terrorists targeting civil aviation by reinforcing, strengthening and promoting the international framework of aviation security standards.

Following AVSEC2019, an Industry Engagement Day was held, which included workshops that drew from the preceding panel discussions on aviation security best practices. Industry Engagement Day brought together a select group of key policy and decision-makers from States, stakeholders and industry partners​ to participate in roundtable discussions and interactive dialogues.
