April 19: Airport Security — Protecting a National Resource (Security Today webinar)

Dr. Jon C. Haass, speaker for Airport Security webinar

Airports are vital national resources. They serve a key role in transportation of people and goods, and in regional, national and international commerce. They are where the nation’s aviation system connects with other modes of transportation and where federal responsibility for managing and regulating air traffic operations intersects with the role of state and local governments that own and operate most airports. Research is necessary to solve common operating problems, to adapt appropriate new technologies from other industries, and to introduce innovations into the airport industry. Security has been and always will be a crucial feature for airports. From infrastructure to cybersecurity, this complimentary webinar will share information and resources that are useful and applicable at the airport.

Speaker Dr. Jon C. Haass serves as the president and as chair of the board for the not-for-profit Prescott Regional Opportunity Foundation. Dr. Haass has been an executive with five startup companies in the software, hardware and services business, and has more than 30 years’ experience as an entrepreneur, business developer and mentor/coach. Dr. Haass is a professor and the founding faculty and served as department chair of the Cyber Intelligence and Security degree programs at the nation’s first College of Security and Intelligence at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He served as the interim Dean of the College, and represents northern Arizona on the Arizona Cybersecurity Team. He also serves as advisory board member for the Arizona Cyber Threat Response Alliance (ACTRA). His areas of research interest include the connected cyber-physical systems that encompass airplanes, cars, industrial controls and more. He was co-author on a report for the National Academy of Science on Airport Cybersecurity.

The event is sponsored by Salient, provider of the open cloud video data platform CompleteView VMS, and Winsted, a worldwide provider of control room console solutions. A Q&A session will be held during the last 15 minutes of the webinar. Those unable to attend may register now and view this presentation after April 19 at no cost, at your convenience.
