Join us and a panel of industry experts for a Maritime Security seminar-based exercise at the Cavalry and Guards Club to discuss the emerging security threats that may affect shipping in the Red Sea and Mediterranean.
Maritime security threats are constantly evolving. We have seen that the enduring hostilities and regional instability across the Middle East and North African states resulting from the Arab Spring and foreign intervention has catalysed the rise of ISIL. The alleged attack on an Egyptian naval vessel off the Sinai Peninsular on 16 July this year highlights the scale of the risk to shipping. Security agencies have also warned of security threats associated with the mass migration from north African states, which could be exploited by adversary groups to infiltrate European countries. With merchant vessels compelled to respond to vessels in distress, this creates a highly dangerous developing situation.
To discuss these issues and the solutions, why not join Port2Port and an expert panel of professionals for a seminar-based crisis management exercise at the Cavalry and Guards Club on 9th September, immediately after the BIMCO breakfast briefing. The exercise is aimed at those charged with the key roles and responsibilities for decision-making during a crisis at the strategic, tactical and operational levels. The exercise will provide a platform to focus on three key areas of concern.
• Raising awareness and preparing for the emerging terrorist threat
• Effective response
• Managing recovery activities – the broader ship casualty issues and post incident crime scene management considerations.
You will be able to actively participate in discussions around these topics throughout the two-hour crisis management exercise and panel discussion, taking advantage of the real-world knowledge of representatives from industry including BIMCO, Military, Port2Port, P&I Club and the Legal profession.
