03 Drone Security (Solo)

This course on Drone Security will take a high level view of the security landscape as it relates to drones and investigate specifically what local authorities can do to fulfil their responsibilities, keep their citizens safe and ensure beneficial use of the new urban air technologies.

The first two modules provide a security overview from a national perspective, and then a more granular introduction to specific types of threat from safety to people on the ground as well as in the air, privacy, business interruption, possible criminal behaviour and much more.  We will look at these, highlighting those which local authorities are most likely to encounter.

In the third module we will look at the security role of local governments in managing drone threats and risks considering the current rules, laws and governance around drone use with a particular focus on measures which limit the use of drones, including bylaws and laws around the use of counter UAS equipment.  We will take an overview of what many local authorities are doing in this area, as well as balancing this against their role to engage with local industry and  support business to grow and develop, contributing to local and national economies.

In the fourth module we will examine the role ofpolice  agencies: national governance, regional coordination, and local delivery of counter drones across policing, including Counter Terrorism, Organised Crime, Public Order and Frontline

In the fifth module we will then look at what specialist police drone teams do, and police capability to detect and mitigate careless, inconsiderate or criminal use of drones – and how best to contact them for advice and guidance, particularly around the relevant legislation. We will discuss some mitigation technologies and procedures – signage, communications and social media and advice and guidance for critical infrastructure. In the sixth and final module we will look at future developments and how the Civil Aviation Authority may plan to regulate drones in a busy airspace.
