Security Programmes

Security Programmes Drafting

Our consultants are able to assist in the development and drafting of security programmes. Many programmes fail as the views and perspectives of impacted parties are not taking into consideration at the initial planning stage. We manage the consultation process and develop workable programmes with optimum buy-in by all concerned.

Green Light’s consultants can assist you in developing and drafting:
National Aviation Security Programmes
Airline Security Programmes
Airport Security Programmes
Security Procedures
Security Procedures Manuals
Training Programmes
Contingency Plans
Emergency Response Programmes
Security Programmes (for industry stakeholders)

Please CONTACT us indicating your specific requirements.

Training Needs Analysis

Many organisations are quick to purchase training for their personnel simply because of a need to meet regulatory requirements. Sometimes, such as with X-ray screener courses, the needs are clear and off-the-shelf training solutions can be purchased. However, if one is looking at other areas – behavioural analysis, hijack management, security management, inflight security for example – sometimes it is better to effect a Training Needs Analysis to ensure that the training is truly impactful. This is all the more important when an organisation is revamping its entire security programme.

In conducting a Training Needs Analysis, Green Light’s consultants can help identify the best approach to your training requirements – determining who needs training, in what areas and for how long. The gaps in knowledge can be ascertained and modules can then be developed to provide a tailored security training solution.

Security Auditing & Red Teaming

Auditing:
Green Light is experienced in conducting security audits (surveys) for organisations within the transportation, tourism and hospitality industries. The audits are designed to evaluate the extent to which internal, national or international standards are being met and highlight areas for improvement. Our consultants work to the client’s brief, which determines the scope, scale and duration of the audit, and produce a constructive, confidential report that is submitted within days of the audit’s conclusion. Generally, audits cover all areas of the operation, from the procedures enacted to the usage of manpower, and from staff training through to technology maintenance and emergency response capability.

Red Teaming:
For the most effective test of the effectiveness of a security operation, we offer our clients the opportunity to run a live operational test whereby we simulate an attack scenario. For the screeners or guards, such tests are completely unannounced. We use a combination of security consultants and professional actors to attempt to penetrate a checkpoint. All concealments of prohibited items carried by the team can be reasonably identified so that the operatives are being tested on what they would be expected to identify.

Cyber Security

With the increasing adoption of digital technologies across the aviation sector, cyber security is becoming a serious and urgent concern. A successful cyber-attack can threaten lives, cause significant financial loss, disrupt operations and may lead to an irreparable damage to reputation.

Green Light can offer a dedicated comprehensive cyber security solution to meet the high demands of the aviation industry that requires more than traditional security measures to protect its complex ecosystem. It is based on a strategy that brings together highly trained personnel, up-to-date solutions, and the right technology and capabilities to detect, analyse and respond to threats in a timely and effective manner.

Our comprehensive solution concentrates on the big picture and creates tailor-made cyber security programmes based on experience in cyber warfare & intelligence. Our expert cybersecurity team has developed a holistic cyber strategy, addressing multiple threats within the aviation sector:

Airline and airport web services
Critical infrastructure infiltration
On-board systems attack
Cyber terror threats
Frequent flyer skimming
Supply chain inspection
Insider threats
Denial of Service attacks
Account takeovers
Ransomware

In order to counter these threats, we offer a portfolio of complementary services to reinforce our clients’ security posture and bring it to the forefront of current technology and knowledge.

For example, in the ever-shifting landscape of cyber-crime and terrorism, having access to timely information and intelligence about possible threats and impending attacks is vital to protect an organisation. A multi-lingual team of experts gather contextual information from open sources and the DarkNet to create a comprehensive review of an organisation`s cyber threats. The report is created individually to serve the needs of the specific customer and contains detailed and prioritised information about past, existing and potential cyber threats together with recommendations for mitigation.

We also offer:

Risk Assessment – a comprehensive review of the company’s security level, listing vulnerabilities and mitigation recommendations.
Cyber Security Plan – a detailed, actionable and optimised cyber security and business continuity plan based on the completed risk assessment.
Incident Response Support – emergency expert service available 24/7 to handle any case of breach or attack, in order to limit damages and reduce recovery time and costs.
Training and Mentoring – flexible cyber security training programmes from general awareness to advanced cyber security skills.
