Most airports not protected from cyber threats

At Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, about 40% of airport workers are security personnel who work tirelessly round the clock to protect the country’s main international airport from terrorist attacks.

The heightened focus on airport security started well over 40 years ago after Israeli forces had freed hostages from a hijacked aircraft in a major attack, according to Eliezer Marum, chairman of the Israel Airports Authority.

Today, the airport is equipped with sophisticated physical security systems and intelligent security units to fend off growing threats that have also become increasingly cyber in nature.
