Security Culture Workshop (SCW)

This four-day interactive workshop is designed to familiarize participants with the development and implementation of an effective security culture, which is one of the key priority outcomes of the ICAO Global Aviation Security Plan (GASeP). Promoting a robust security culture is critical to achieving good security outcomes. Therefore, the workshop focuses on interactive exercises that enable the participants to learn how to develop, implement, and maintain robust and positive security culture within their organization. Recognizing that a strong security culture must be developed from the top management across and within every organization, participants should be responsible for the development and implementation of security culture and security measures within their organization, including but not limited to, at the middle and senior management from the State's appropriate authority for aviation security, police and intelligence services, airport and airline operators, and other aviation security stakeholders.
