In recent years there has been a rapid change and an almost constant evolution within the maritime security domain. From virtually a clean-sheet we have seen the fundamental development of an entire industry, with standards, contracts and rules for the use of force all rising from a need for recognised, respected and reliable maritime security. Working together private maritime security companies and their shipping clients have come through a lot.
While progress has been swift and all encompassing it is now a perfect time to look ahead, to understand what the future of maritime security holds, the threats to business and the opportunities too.
The Security Association for the Maritime Industry (SAMI) is hosting a workshop on “The Future of Maritime Security” onboard HMS President, Victoria Embankment, as part of London International Shipping Week.
- Wednesday 11th September
- 13.30 – 17.00
- HMS President, Victoria Embankment, London
The event will feature presentations from leading figures operating across the maritime security sector on a wide range of topics including:
- The future threats to shipping
- The operational implications of the Maritime Labour Convention
- The logistical challenges of maritime security
As well as assessing the role of intelligence, equipment, technology and hardware.
The aim is to not only provide a vision of the challenges ahead, it also provide opportunities for networking amongst key maritime stakeholders – from owners and operators, ship managers, lawyers, insurers, security operators, trade bodies, academia and a range of industry thought leaders.
As the world will descend on London for answers about shipping, this is a chance to find out about the future of maritime security too.
Full Agenda will be released soon
The event is free to attend and by registration only.
