Over the next six months, CAAi will produce a series of security culture discussion cards to facilitate conversations on security culture in aviation. In addition, CAAi will develop an interactive e-Learning package to educate users on combatting security threats and deliver a suite of customisable resources, including display posters, flyers, and briefing packs. CAAi will also produce an animated film to highlight the threats to aviation and the benefits of good security behaviours for maintaining a positive security culture.
The Year of Security Culture was inaugurated by Dr Fang Liu, former Secretary General of ICAO, during her closing remarks at the ICAO Global Aviation Security Symposium 2020. The goal was to raise security awareness in aviation operations and encourage the entire sector to think and act in a security-conscious manner.
Kevin Sawyer, Senior Manager of Aviation Security at CAAi, commented:
“We are delighted to support ICAO with this important initiative. The Year of Security Culture campaign has been significant for intensifying collaboration amongst States and industry to promote a positive security culture across the entire aviation community. This project will build on that great impetus and help keep security culture top of the agenda into 2022 and beyond.”
This project announcement builds on previous security culture collaborations between ICAO and CAAi. Earlier this year, both parties jointly launched an Introduction to Security Culture training course under the ICAO TRANAIR Plus programme. CAAi also hosted security culture workshops at AVSEC 2021 and contributed to various materials and resources for the ICAO security culture website.
The project commenced in December 2021 and is expected to last six months.
