Premium, CSC's business magazine | Autumn 2008 | No. 5
This edition of Premium will explore how airports must increasingly adopt a logistical vision. And how to think in terms of common procedures and no longer just in terms of juxtaposed professions.
A summary of this Autumn edition:

But how does this sector evolves and progresses in areas such as the authentication of individuals or data protection? It relies heavily on the management of people's identity, in the form of a passport or an ID card. So what is CSC doing to aid governments with this type of project? Premium evaluates the situation.
