Aviation Security

Outsmart the Adversary

Traditional terrorism countermeasures have often proven ineffective in the protection of critical infrastructure (such as airports) because they are reactive.

TAL Global’s risk-based, mission-focused approach uses biometric technology; advanced intelligence-driven passenger screening; leveraged databases; behavioral sciences; and quantifiable measurements to drive an adaptive, multi-layered process that maximizes security while optimizing resource utilization.


TAL Global Aviation Security Department will:

  • Review existing security policies, procedures & technology
  • Analyze the current status of physical security at the site
  • Complete a comparative analysis of site security using comparable benchmark locations and organizations
  • Ensure compliance with relevant regulations
