Mikel Santos, cyber security expert at PA Consulting, discusses IoT and airport security in Mexico.
The article notes that technology has fostered a great sense of certainty, but it has also brought about big challenges for business security, especially in key places such as airports. The increasing interconnectedness of devices in the every-day life poses great security challenges in places where a vast volume of information and multiple cybersecurity systems communicate ceaselessly; one of these places are airports.
Mikel says: "Airports are a place where top logistics are crucial. Each airline has its security systems, and there is a massive flow of people every day at every hour."
He adds that two main factors impact security: IoT and the lack of regulations to communicate vulnerabilities.
Mikel says: “There is no such thing as a 100-percent safe environment, but experts could be better suited to detecting real and tangible threats if airlines and airports notified potential vulnerabilities in time. Having stronger capabilities, paying closer attention and knowing about potential threats would help ensure stronger security in the aviation industry.”
