Security Management Expert Addresses Pat-Downs
Boston, Massachusetts, USA - A top security management expert has decided to weigh-in on the current airport pat-down crisis with a white paper called, “Frontal Pat Downs - It’s Getting Personal”. Peter W. Harris is a retired Navy flier and president of security management firm, Yankee Foxtrot, Inc., located on the web at www.yankee-foxtrot.com. Peter’s insights are highly informed, speaking from years of involvement with the TSA. His firm’s Senior Government Affairs Advisor, Tom Blank, has been called a “founding father” of the TSA. The firm’s team members have been closely involved with developing and deploying many of the key security technologies employed by ports worldwide.
Addressing the pat-down issue, Harris writes, “The passengers’ anger has been well chronicled over the last few days - their rights have been violated; their religion does not allow them to be touched; ladies feel that they are being fondled; sexual abuse victims feel re-threatened”. He continues, “Technology exists today that does not have the attendant privacy and radiation issues that the presently deployed equipment have. This testing should start now”. His other recommendations to the TSA include, “…hire a national spokesman”, “…develop a risk-based approach to scanning passengers”, and the introduction of a “…new security protocol” of “random scannings.”
Mr. Harris’ timely message recognizes the seriousness of the TSA mission, and the likelihood they are responding to a credible threat, going into the highest travel period of the year. His advice is respectful of both the TSA and the traveling public, offering significant fine tuning ideas for moving ahead.
