The threats to national critical infrastructure are growing in complexity, with new modus operandi, as well as a broader range of perpetrators. Amongst many targets, terrorist groups continue to perceive attacks against international civil aviation as an effective way to cause substantial loss of life, economic damage and disruption. Despite considerable security enhancements across all civil aviation sectors, it's often implemented in silos. This session will explore how the civil aviation sector can contribute to counter-terrorism frameworks and interagency cooperation at the broader national level.
