Airport Security Summit
Adapting to new threats: future-proofing airport security
Security is, of course, the first priority of all airports. The Airport Security Summit brings together key stakeholders from across the industry, including airports, regulators, security agencies and solution providers. Alongside examples of clear and present best practice, a key focus this year is on future-proofing airport security by adapting to new threats, as the industry strives for a seamless, secure, safe passenger journey.
Attendees are invited to the welcome reception at the Norway Convention Center. Attendees will be treated to a relaxed evening of networking and socialising whilst enjoying local refreshments, canapes and entertainment.

Further key interventions from:
MFace, the facial capture and match solution first deployed at self-bag drop and egates at Changi, is most recently the technology behind the successful deployment of egates at Oslo Airport in 2018 and the Air France biometric boarding pass project at Paris-CDG Terminal 2E. How can airports utilise biometric technology for passenger processing as they prepare for changing EU regulations, the need to address GDPR, and the desire to use biometrics to link different travel touchpoints together digitally?
Solution Expert on Passenger Flow Facilitation
The Rockwell Collins Airport Single Token Biometric Journey – how soon will this be a practical technology speeding up secure travel at airports everywhere? Is it being warmly embraced by the control authorities?
Senior Director, Airport Systems Marketing and Strategy
Biometric identification, passenger flow real-time orchestration through automation, and in-depth data analytics, are bringing the airport of the future into the present. Does this offer the holy grail of combining the challenge of growth, enhanced non-aviation revenue, and the central requirement of increasing passenger security, into one single best practice?
Business Innovation VP
Attaché to the EU and Belgium
Transportation Security Administration
The very real threat of cybersecurity – the air transport community needs to succeed in building a multi-faceted approach, which includes identification, protection, detection and reaction. What does the Airbus and SITA Security Operations Center Services offer to help airports better detect, analyse, respond, and report on cybersecurity incidents?
CyberSecurity Consulting Practice Lead
A real lesson in cybersecurity: The Fort McMurray International Airport cyberattack of August 2017
President & CEO
Fort McMurray International Airport
The perspective of both an airport operator and air navigation services provider. What is the perceived cybersecurity threat, and what cybersecurity measures is Avinor taking across its airports and air traffic control services?
Head of Aviation Security
Key interventions from:
Case Study: In June 2018, there were two incidents of illegal drone use close to Oslo Airport, which led to closure of both runways for 30 minutes, resulting in aircraft being diverted to Sandefjord Airport, Torp. What actions has the airport undertaken since then to prevent this from happening again?
Head of ATC, Gardermoen Tower
UAVs: The perceived terrorist, criminal and operational threat to airports, and effective means of prevention and mitigation
Security Risk Manager
London Heathrow Airport
Finland has taken several drone mitigations measures, but the rate of near-miss situations continues to climb significantly, particularly in the vicinity of airports. Does market growth in drone use simply outstrip the effectiveness of measures? At what point will the situation stabilise? How big is the distinction between reckless and criminal?

All of the conferences were very interesting and the timings were perfect – it was just the right amount of time for each speaker and it was very engaging. The topics were also very relevant. Overall, I attended most of the sessions and I really liked them; we found very new concepts and new technologies.
I attended the Security & Crisis Management Summit which was focused on inside threats and all of the speakers that I heard were focusing on the matter and were giving very nice suggestions for the future. The level was very high and met my expectations for sure.
The whole organisation behind the event was great and I particularly enjoyed the fact that there were different sessions of the conference. It is interesting because sometimes you tend to think that something might not be of your core interest but it turns out to be. And also, I really enjoyed the networking and in general coming together with the people from the industry.
Discussions in the conference sessions have been very engaging, with a lot of interaction between the speakers and the audience. The networking has been excellent – I am pleased with the good contacts we have made both regionally and internationally.
It has been a very big event, with lots of exhibitors and a very high standard of organisation. Overall, I am amazed at the quality of ACI Airport Exchange.
ACI Airport Exchange has been excellent. It has been very well attended, the conference sessions have been interesting, and there has been a good level of engagement between participants.
