What are the challenges in the maritime industry?

Events in the recent past have proven that no country in the world is safe against terrorists. Terrorist attacks can, for whatever motives, occur at any time and at any place. Even the shipping industry cannot escape that fact and the recent examples prove exactly this point.

Unfortunately, this problem is not new to the world or to the European Union. The U.S., the E.U. as well as many other countries have already taken numerous measures to protect their citizens and their means of transportation.

Maritime security is as old as shipping, but modern pirates have advanced along with technology. The startling rise in major incidents is fuelling a burgeoning maritime security industry. In order to combat these threats and protect seafaring people, property and businesses, crews need to be prepared not only with proper training and procedures, but also with potent on-board defences, advanced monitoring and, in some cases, special forces-trained security personnel.

Why is maritime security so important?

Though the maritime industry witnessed a decline in pirate activities, including that of Somali Pirates, in the last few years, new threats are reportedly on the rise now in other parts of the word. That is why the implementation of maritime security courses is very important and involve knowledge and vigilance. Therefore it is extremely important to enhance security enforcement without slowing down the timely flow of international commerce.
In fact, maritime security is a general term for the protection of vessels both internally and externally.

Maritime security cannot be accomplished within a single action. Instead, it involves several different maritime concerns ranging from port security to the safety of sailors. On one hand, maritime security can refer to the prevention of weapons smuggling. On the other hand, it can also refer to protection against piracy at sea.

Security maritime services

Maritime security services have proven an effective way to keep pirates off ships – and crews safe.

We offer a wide range of security maritime protection measures including onboard crew training, pre-voyage preparation, defensive deck configurations, management training and global maritime security intelligence that can be deployed by vessel owners and operators as part of a systematic, multi-layered approach to sea defence.

All our maritime security courses will make it possible for you to get different certificates and licenses that will turn out to be the best evidence of your qualification and skills.

We take a strategic approach that begins with a realistic evaluation of the risks, threats and vulnerabilities facing a given vessel on a given route. Security maritime courses will also cover specific threats including piracy, terrorism and other such occurrences.

For example, 40 Hours X-Ray Scanner Operator and Image Analyses Training is a unique blend of instructor-led classroom and CBT designed to equip all participants with the knowledge, techniques and practical skills required to efficiently and confidently detect acts of smuggling, revenue evasion, weapons proliferation and terrorist threats in X-ray operations.
