Our 4th Maritime Piracy & Security Summit will prepare a shipping company to operate effectively in waters targeted by pirates. This will include appropriate risk assessment, education of pirate activity, non-lethal technologies, armed guard implementation, and proper preparation and care of the crew. International law and assistance will be effectively summarised and presented to you to form part of a well-managed and considered anti-piracy strategy.
At our 4th Maritime Piracy and Security event, discover how you can avoid incidents at sea through better securing of your fleet and crew.
