Sydney, Oct 24(ANI): Major airports in Australia are "wide open" to terror attacks, a major international conference will be told this week.
According to Homeland Security Asia/Pacific, a private consultancy specializing in airport security, the terror attacks are possible at airports due to lax security vetting of staff, poor perimeter protection and no strategy to counter car bombs.
It also claims that security protocols and standards developed to keep the airports safe during the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games ceased to exist six months after the closing ceremony.
The company is delivering a workshop at the Australian Airports Association conference in Adelaide on Wednesday to address what it calls the potential for "systemic failure" of security at airports, the Herald Sun reports.
Over 600 delegates from across the globe are scheduled to attend the conference. (ANI)
