Abstract:

 

TSA's approach to aviation security continues to evolve away from the
one-size-fits-all security layers thinking that dominated the first decade
following 9/11.  In 2011, the agency began implementing an intelligence
driven risk-based security approach for passenger screening.  The RBS
concept continues to evolve with two additional steps in development.  The
next evolution integrates passenger and checked baggage screening with
airport security capabilities. Longer term, TSA intends to adopt a dynamic
flight risk approach that integrates risk from across the aviation domain.
The envisioned phases support improved allocation and use of limited
security resources to better manage risk to commercial aviation.  An
overview of TSAs evolution in thinking about the aviation security problem,
the complexity of this problem, additional capabilities required, and the
application of risk management principles will be discussed.

 

 

About the Speaker:

 

Kenneth Fletcher was named the Chief Risk Officer in February 2014.  In this
new position he is responsible for developing and driving the long-range
strategic vision and objectives for TSA with respect to risk-based security
and risk management activities, and implementing enterprise risk management
across all areas of the agency. 

 

Since joining TSA in January 2003, he has held a variety of field and
headquarters positions including Deputy Assistant Administrator for the
Office of Risk-Based Security, Senior Advisor to the Administrator,
Assistant Federal Security Director of Screening at Baltimore-Washington
International Thurgood Marshall Airport, Deputy Federal Security Director at
Chicago's O'Hare Airport and Chief of Staff for the Office of Training and
Quality Performance. Prior to joining TSA in January 2003, he worked for
five years at Motorola as a senior production supervisor, quality manager
and senior program manager for new product introduction.

 

Fletcher is a veteran, having served in the U.S. Navy for 23 years before
retiring in 1997.  He is married and has three children and five
grandchildren.
