Aviation security – a holistic approach

Aviation security is comprised of a number of interdependencies. Remove, marginalise, or neglect one component and the system falters. 

To support the calls from ICAO and IATA, MedAire and Control Risks propose a holistic approach to proactively prepare for – and mitigate – risks:
  • Insight: the proactive outcome of collecting information; digesting it; and contextualising it against risks to best understand one’s operations and business needs in a volatile, complex and/or uncertain environment.
  • Preparedness: includes the steps required for applying the associated mitigation efforts to ensure, against all known risks, one’s vulnerabilities are minimised or, best case scenario, eliminated.
  • Assistance: when a security breach and/or incident impact operations and personnel, appropriate assistance services are critical to expeditiously support affected persons and safely resume operations.

The nexus of these three critical elements will help organisations secure their people, resources, and operations. 

“The current threat and risk environment demands that aviation security remain among the highest priorities.”

International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)


“Greater collaboration among all government and industry stakeholders is needed to keep flying secure, with risk mitigation measures that maximise the protection of passengers and crew while minimising disruption to passengers and the economy at large.”

International Air Transport Association (IATA)
