In a special report, U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) examines key trends and strategies affecting the future of transportation security, including through advancing global transportation security standards.
The report was developed as TSA looks towards its 25th anniversary in 2026. Key trends highlighted are:
- Continuous threat, with adversaries targeting transportation networks
- Emerging technologies, enabling an agile security model and effective operations
- Cyber-physical interdependency, with the risk of disruption to critical transportation infrastructure
- Passengers demanding customized, seamless travel experiences, with convenient services
- Changing workforce, with a competitive labor market challenging the ability to recruit and retain skilled talent; and
- Transportation system and economy, with passenger and cargo volumes on the increase and in more global regions
TSA is developing an array of strategic responses to these trends, including focusing on improving security and safeguarding the transportation system:
“As a leader in the transportation security network, TSA will work to raise the global baseline of aviation security. We will lead by example by strengthening operations through powerful and adaptable detection capabilities, intelligence-driven operations, and enhanced vetting. Strong partnerships across governments and industry will be integral to success in this shared transportation security mission.”
