The three-day Symposium served as a platform to promote the work of ICAO, its Member States and stakeholders in the area of aviation security. AVSEC2017 brought together AVSEC professionals from around the globe to advance the cultivation of a new mind-set towards aviation security, one that embraces AVSEC as a culture beyond a set of standards. It also strategically enhanced international cooperation and collaboration to address the threat posed by terrorists targeting civil aviation by reinforcing, strengthening and promoting the international framework of aviation security standards. To complement the Symposium, participants had the opportunity to experience an interactive exhibition showcasing the latest State and industry AVSEC technology and process innovations, along with dynamic learning workshops that will stimulate panel discussions on current challenges facing aviation security. The Meeting was attended by 497 participants from 87 Members States and 42 International organizations and industry associations.
