Security culture is a set of norms, beliefs, values, attitudes and assumptions that are inherent in the daily operation of an organisation and are reflected by the actions and behaviours of all entities and personnel within the organisation. Security should be everyone’s responsibility – from the ground up. An effective security culture is about: recognising that effective security is critical to business success; establishing an appreciation of positive security practices among employees; aligning security to core business goals; and articulating security as a core value rather than as an obligation or a burdensome expense.

This course is delivered in collaboration with a partner and on request. Please contact JAA TO for the possibilities.

Course Content


  • Delegates will learn about the importance of security culture by examining previous aviation security incidents in order to give real, practical understanding of why a positive security culture is important.
  • Delegates will discuss the elements that make up a security culture and explore how the extensive work that has been done in the aviation safety sphere can benefit aviation security.
  • The course will provide delegates with practical tools to both benchmark current security culture within their organisations and techniques and best practices for enhancing and maintaining a positive security culture.

Learning Objectives

This course aims to give delegates an understanding of what a security culture is, what the benefits of a security culture are and how it can be embedded. An active learning approach is taken by examining the experience of creating a safety culture in aviation and what security practitioners can learn from this. Delegates will also be given tools and techniques to measure current security culture in their organisations.

On completing the course delegates will demonstrate an understanding of the following:

  • What a security culture is and how it fits into wider organisational aims and objectives.
  • The lessons that can be learnt from safety and how these can be applied to security.
  • The practices, tools and techniques that can foster a positive security culture.
  • How security culture can be measured.
  • The role an effective security culture plays in mitigating risks.

Who should take this course

This course is suitable for individuals at a supervisory/management level engaged in aviation security around the world, from National Aviation Authorities, government and industry.
