Understanding your risks – the use of private intelligence providers: Panel Overview
The aviation security industry is increasingly dependent on intelligence services via the private sector. Their services are beneficial because these companies are able to provide accurate information. Some services provide a dashboard of global to-the-hour information; others provide deeper intelligence based on regular engagement with their customers. But most airlines and airports employ their own security directors and have relationships with government intelligence agencies, so why are the services of external companies required? What model of information is the best for the aviation sector? What is the value proposition and the risk for companies that do not employ such services?
The audience will learn:
- Why airline security departments employ private intelligence service providers
- The value that intelligence service provides to its customers
- Risk that operators without the most current and accurate information may face
- Potential applications for intelligence services for other players besides airlines
