Maritime Security Consultancy

SHIELD can assist your maritime business in developing strategic and operational security plans, to mitigate risks associated with shipping and port operations around the world.

A maritime security plan sets out the security measures and procedures to be implemented, at each maritime security level, to safeguard against acts of unlawful interference with maritime transport or offshore facilities.

We provide a security and vulnerability assessment that identifies and describes the main security threat to port facilities and vessels.

Vulnerability assessment that includes:

  • A description of the port or ship facility containing information on facility characteristics and the type of operations conducted at the facility. The description also includes a review of the essential activities and assets in port or ship facility, including operations, properties and infrastructure
  • Identification of possible threats to assets and activities (Risk Assessment)
  • Identification of weaknesses, including human factors in the port or ship facility infrastructure, processes and internal workflows
  • Identification, selection and prioritization of measures to mitigate vulnerabilities, and
  • Identification of necessary changes in the port or ship procedures, etc. in order to reduce the vulnerability

Based on vulnerability assessment, we prepare and implement security and contingency plans.

SHIELD helps you to understand how your company is vulnerable for threats and how prevention procedures can help your business to mitigate those threats. To understand the operational security performance we observe and analyses operations on-board vessels, oil rigs and at port facilities.

That includes:

  • Expert consultation and training to guide companies and change mindsets and behaviors regarding security and contingency procedures
  • Targeted interventions to ensure lasting change, building on security management priorities
  • An intelligence report detailing critical global maritime security issues with commentary by leading SHIELD experts on the current security landscape
  • A Risk Management approach to assist management to understand the implications of security results and seize opportunities for improvement, and build a recognized organizational strength
