Port Security: Risk, Threats & Opportunities
Embracing Intelligence, Data & Innovation
Wednesday 9th April 2014 : 1330 – 1700
HQS Wellington, Victoria Embankment, London, WC2R 2PN
The Security Association for the Maritime Industry (SAMI) is pleased to announce an invaluable opportunity for the shipping industry to hear about and discuss the latest developments and innovations on Port Security in a seminar that will explore the Risks, Threats and Opportunities with leading industry experts.
Maritime security threats are evolving and ports are having to meet tough new challenges. There is an economic drive to ensure that ports are secure – and an increasing focus on proving they have the systems, processes, people and equipment in place to safeguard their secure integrity.
The key to keeping ports secure while maintaining the flow of cargo and ease of vessel and traffic movement is to embrace intelligence, data and innovation.
These are massive challenges, and they can only be overcome by understanding the problems, and by drawing on the systematic and intelligent responses which exist.
Technology can be used, but it has to be part of a wider, overarching security regime and philosophy. For secure ports there are massive opportunities, and whether it is higher cargo throughput or lower insurance premiums, security makes a difference to all areas of operation.
The risks and threats posed to ports, impact the users, investors and clients too. So it is imperative that the right actions are taken.
