Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions, such as MTrust, are being increasingly utilised in the Airport sector, due to the flexibility and reduced infrastructure costs that they offer. However, not all SaaS providers are the same, so what questions should Airports ask before they engage a SaaS provider?
Human Recognition Systems’ (HRS) MTrust is reducing pass rejections and waiting times, streamlining Gatwick’s ID Centre operations to increase security and improve service

In a previous blog, I outlined the 4Ds that Identity Management Systems, such as MTrust, use to enable Critical National Infrastructure providers to know and manage their workforce. Here, I look in more detail at the last two Ds - Decide and Discover.

As my children have got a little older they seem to have already passed the ‘why stage’. In one sense I don’t miss that stage – many parents will understand! However, I would be wrong to be pleased by the end of their many why questions.

As most Airport professionals and on-airport staff know applying for an Airport ID Pass can be a painful process. Whilst the rules underpinned by regulation have been added to, extended and further complicated, over 25 years, all except one of the UK’s Airports still use the same paper based processes (though a number of others will soon make the switch - watch this space!).
Identity management is a vital tool for Critical National Infrastructure providers in combating the insider threat. The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CNPI) stated, “There is a clear link between an insider act taking place and exploitable weaknesses in an employer’s protective security and management processes.”
In a previous blog we outlined how Airports could address the 6 key issues identified by the CPNI to directly mitigate the insider threat, but what can such identity management systems do for Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) providers such as Energy, Transport and Water sectors?
