How airline passenger data helps combat terrorism and fight serious crime.
Three senior officials from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security spent almost two hours on May 17 explaining to an attentive Brussels audience why airline passenger data is essential in the fight against terrorism and serious transnational crime. During the lively discussion on Passenger Name Record (PNR) data, General Counsel Ivan K. Fong, Chief Privacy Officer Mary Ellen Callahan, and Director of Customs and Border Protection Analysis and Targeting Thomas Bush provided specific examples of how PNR data has helped foil transatlantic terrorism plots in recent years, saving countless lives.
