Airline Security

In today’s world, we must confront threats and challenges from heightened terrorist activity. Terrorists are willing to give up their lives during an attack with total disregard for the consequences of their action. While the intelligence community thought they could detect and warn security systems of imminent terrorist attacks, this has proven to be a disastrous oversight. This is why it is essential to contact I.G.S. Security USA. ‍ Since the tragedy of September 11, 2001, America and other Western Nations have stepped up the fight against terrorism, going as far as becoming involvement in the war in Afghanistan in addition to other parts of the world. As a result, airports and airlines around the globe have become attractive targets for attacks by terrorists.

I.G.S. Security USA recognizes that aviation security is a dynamic field presenting evolving risks and challenges. These require appropriately-tailored responses that attempt to minimize error in random airport checks and concentrate efforts in a systemized, manner for maximum success. I.G.S. Security USA has 27 years of experience in worldwide counter terrorism. We have developed unique training programs for our security officers that enable them to act at a higher level than average. Our experience shows that the best defense against potential catastrophe is a fully-integrated security program that carefully and effectively combines, human, architectural, technological and operational elements. In combination, this creates a flexible response system. The nature of the threats facing American airports is key to the security system design and integration.

The Task:

Audit the existing state of airport security operations and design an efficient and effective security system, ensuring maximum safety, while being completely integrated into day-to-day routine. The Program consists of three stages:
