Cybersecurity: Threats in a digital age

Drawing upon his experience of the airport IT security culture and how getting it right can not only enhance efficiency but also ensure security, Mahmood AlSeddiqi from Bahrain Airport Company, reveals his seven-step approach to cybersecurity.

Cybersecurity is one of the hottest topics in the world today. What was once a problem for IT departments is now a national issue, effecting companies across the globe. For airports, it’s a particularly pressing problem.

This enhances the risk, as if a common use platform is breached it effectively becomes an ‘attack one, effect all’ situation.
