In light of global challenges with regards to increasing transport requirements, just in time logistics, crime, migration and terrorist threats, as well as attacks on safety and functional personnel, the security of the transport of people, goods and material is of fundamental importance.
This event will highlight the growing demands and challenges of transport security and will discuss activities to meet the requirements and will address proposals to counter the threats. Secure logistics are essential for mobile societies. The secure flow of people, goods and information within the complex environment of networked globalisation are highly vulnerable require more political attention than ever.
The rapid growth of demand for mobility adds to the challenge of maintaining adequate safety and security standards everywhere. Those who set standards create markets. This process is embodied by terms like good governance, rule of law and anti-corruption, among others.
How can we protect an open system with state of the art technologies but without cordoning it off by increasing security requirements, making it unreasonably expensive, or disproportionately limiting personal or entrepreneurial freedom? We need to think in a more interconnected way. Today’s security architecture in the field of transport and logistics is extremely segmented and based on an entire bundle of individual measures. Usually, they are separately created within different legal systems.
