2021 has been designated by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as the Year of Security Culture (YOSC).


The YOSC initiative aims to raise security awareness and promote a positive security culture in aviation operations across the world. It seeks to encourage and facilitate the enhancement of security behaviours and practices, focusing on the principle that security is everyone's responsibility – from the ground up and top-down.
