Over the past five years, several significant changes in modern security have occurred, particularly in aviation and other transportation methods. These changes are driven by the increasing sophistication of security threats and the need to enhance passenger safety and security. Here are a few fundamental differences:
Increased use of biometric technology: Biometric technology, such as facial recognition and fingerprint scanning, is being increasingly used to improve security in airports and other transportation hubs. Biometric technology offers improved accuracy and efficiency compared to traditional identification methods, helping to reduce wait times and enhance security.
The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in security: AI and ML are increasingly used to identify and respond to security threats in real time. These technologies are particularly effective in detecting and responding to previously unknown or advanced threats that traditional security tools may miss.
The growing importance of cybersecurity in transportation: With the increasing use of digital technologies in transportation, cybersecurity has become a critical concern. Transportation organisations invest in cybersecurity measures to protect against cyber attacks that could disrupt operations or compromise passenger safety.
The use of advanced screening technologies: Advanced screening technologies, such as full-body scanners and explosives detection systems, are used to improve security in airports and other transportation hubs. These technologies offer improved accuracy and efficiency compared to traditional screening methods, helping to enhance security while reducing wait times.
Increased focus on employee training: With the increasing sophistication of security threats, employee training has become more critical than ever. Transportation organisations invest in employee training programs to ensure staff members have the knowledge and skills to detect and respond to security threats.
Looking towards the future, these trends will likely continue to evolve, and new security challenges will emerge. Here are a few industry-based predictions:
Increased use of artificial intelligence and machine learning: AI and machine learning technologies will become increasingly important in transportation security, helping to identify and respond to security threats in real time.
The emergence of new cybersecurity threats: As transportation systems become more interconnected, new cybersecurity threats will emerge.
