How to approach maritime security in 2021
Major actors in maritime policy, ocean governance and international security have in the past decade started to include maritime security as a priority for their mandate.
In the maritime world, safety and security are paramount. Maritime security is a general term for the protection of vessels both internally and externally.
We have to admit that nowadays the demands on maritime operations today are increasingly higher in terms of control, efficiency and cost than they used to be years ago. The margins for accidents and security incidents are therefore decreasing, but it’s up to the maritime companies to adjust the efficiency of their security measures to the current challenges.
The maritime security industry has evolved rapidly in response to the growing threat of international piracy.
In the area of ship safety the regulations, guidelines and methods have a history and culture of systematic research, development and implementation.
To many observers, maritime security appears to be a large and sometimes not fully understood concept. In fact it has become a large task involving many entities from international, public and private sectors aiming at:
- preserving the freedom of the seas
- facilitating and defending commerce
- maintaining good governance at sea
All the nations using maritime transport and all the nations benefiting from it are involved in making the seas more secure. In the same time, for all these state entities, maritime security is a priority.
Maritime Security Training
Shipping and ships represent great monetary as well as symbolic value and can therefore be the target of security threats such as robbery, piracy or terrorist attack.
The purpose of naval ships is to protect (offensively and defensively) national interests against threats during war or other types of crisis. Therefore, for both civilian and naval ships there is a need to analyse the threat and reduce the possible harmful effects of an attack.
We strongly believe that maritime training is one of the most important factors to consider in achieving safe and secure operations of vessels. This is why we also strongly believe that our courses specifically designed and crafted for the maritime security professionals provide the proper knowledge, reaction and training to our trainees.
We provide a complete range of industry accredited courses to maritime security professionals. For example, Cruise Line Gaming Simulation Training is a special mix of instructor-led classroom and gaming simulation software, designed to improve the Cruise Line’s strategic response to threats and incidents while providing a unique player experience.
All information exchanged and actions taken during the simulation by the participants are captured in a computerised system and provide an enhanced analysis tool of the airport’s crisis management abilities. The maritime simulations reflect prevailing operational procedures designed to confront critical strategic dilemmas and the players represent their own positions within the Cruise Line.
Maritime safety training is offered to numerous organisations, mainly from the military and institutional communities:
- Coast Guard;
- Special Forces.
If you still haven’t found the training course you are looking for or if you want to choose from a wider range of products, we have made the Products Catalogue available to you.
Of course, if you need support or additional information, the Renful Premier Technologies team is at your disposal!
