Robert P.H Axworthy Msyl, Regional Aviation Security Liaison Officer - UK Department for Transport (TRANSPORT) at the British Embassy commented, 'Within the aviation security community there are serious problems in some areas with agencies being stove-piped and failing to communicate with one another on crucial issues. There are also many in a large number of countries who appear to be vying for primacy and the lead in aviation security matters. What matters most of course is the prevention of loss of life through terrorist attack. Within the whole process there remain weak links and until reliable technology is introduced widely, physical search of both staff personnel and passengers remains the vulnerable area.'
Topics that will be addressed at the forum include: managing the intelligence threat and risk assessment process in government and private sectors, bridging the gap between airports, airlines, law enforcement and governmental authorities, examining essential preventative measures to counter the spread of the H1N1 flu virus and evaluating new biometric security technologies and implementation methods.
