Ship & Port Security Workshop - 13th November 2013
CPD Accredited by The Security Institute
Piracy on the high seas remains an intractable problem despite the deployment of substantial naval assets in many of the worlds more notorious piracy hotspots. UK government officials recently gave the green light to arming merchant vessels traversing such dangerous waters.
This important and timely workshop focuses on the security options available to the merchant marine, including the deployment of armed personnel, real time tracking of vessels at sea and the wide range of other threat mitigation and hardening solutions available today to protect crews and ensure safe passage for valuable cargos.
