  • Published by Ozgur Tore

munich m sec conferenceMunich Airport is hosting an international symposium on security issues in civil aviation. The more than 200 renowned security specialists, conflict researchers, politicians and representatives from the European Commission, NATO, Europol and Eurocontrol experts in attendance will discuss current challenges in addressing dangers in aviation.

Topics on the agenda include the importance of a transnational data transfer between security authorities as well as the threats posed by drone or cyber attacks on airports. The focus of the “M-Sec” conference at Munich Airport, initiated by Ambassador Wolfgang Ischinger, the chairman of the Munich Security Conference, is on the specific security requirements faced by international airports in their capacity as “critical infrastructure”.

In his welcoming address, the Bavarian State Minister Dr. Markus Söder stressed the growing importance of security awareness in aviation. He said, “We will have to redouble our efforts in aviation security, not only on the ground and in the air, but especially in the field of information technology. We are constantly updating our security strategies, for example to defend against cyber attacks on aircraft. Munich Airport, Bavaria’s gateway to the world, has already set new standards in security and we will continue leading the way.” Andrea Gebbeken, executive director for Commercial and Security at Munich Airport, stressed the opportunities presented to everyone by the exchange of ideas at the expert level. “With this new forum, Munich Airport is fostering an in-depth exchange of international experience in the field of aviation security. We hope all participants will take advantage of the findings presented at the conference to enhance aviation security.”
