​ICAO aviation security assistance and training


ICAO aviation security assistance and training considers the promotion of a positive security culture a priority. This is because a strong security culture in aviation complements any and all aviation security training that we, or any other organization, deliver.  If staff in the entire organization are not dedicated to security. And if staff do not understand the threats to civil aviation or the importance of aviation security, then implemented security measures will only go so far. Therefore, all of ICAO’s aviation security training embed security culture best practices within the content.


Additionally, ICAO is proud to introduce the ICAO Security Culture Workshop, which builds upon the best practices and keys to develop, implement, and sustain security culture principles. Principles which are highlighted in the ICAO Security Culture Toolkit and ICAO Security Culture Campaign Starter Pack.

Objectives of the workshop include:

  • Explaining the principles, importance, and benefits of an effective security culture;
  • Presenting tools and best practices for the development of a strong and sustainable security culture; and
  • Illustrating the process that can be used to develop behaviour change through campaigns to build and maintain an effective security culture.
