Airport Security – Are We Safer?

airport-securityPublic opinion varies wildly about the effectivity of airport screening, with many passengers simply feeling violated after security screening, rather than safer.

The TSA has been around for 15 years, and recent reports suggest that screening personnel are under-performing. Some think that there is too much focus on the process of screening, and not enough on performance, which could lead to another terrorist attack.

Perhaps the answer lies in automated airport security, and with the introduction of sophisticated biometric security systems, why not? If human error is to be blamed for under-performance, then airports around the world are bound to become reliant on technology to keep borders secure.
