Why Peer Reviews Are More Important Than Ever

When it comes to aviation peer reviews, the more things change the more they stay the same. Content changes relentlessly, but form does not - at least it should not, and for very good reason.

Free Webinar: Managing Physical Identities and Their Access in Airports

Managing Physical Identities and Their Access in Airports

Airports face one of the most intricate challenges with regards to managing physical access to restricted areas within their facilities. They are responsible for all types of airport workers (tenants, airlines, federal, construction, visitors, etc.) all of which must be authenticated at all times. Due to manual, paper-based processes for issuing badges, airports are realizing unnecessarily high operations costs and potential non-compliance with security directives. It is time for a modern approach that can further alleviate insider threat while increasing customer service.

Join us in this FREE discussion on Thursday, March 27th at 2:00 PM (EDT) where we will discuss the major challenges faced by airports today and how an aviation identity management solution can help airport security practitioners:

  • Automate identity lifecycle processes - applications, renewals, audits, vetting, training, billing, etc.
  • Insure 100% real-time compliance and data quality - TSA SD1542-04-08G, FAA Part 39, CATSA/TC, etc.
  • Integrate disparate systems - PACS, Biometrics, DACS, Computer Based Training, Finance
  • Provide a paperless, customer friendly environment for aviation workers to rapidly get to work
  • And more!
