On the high seas, too: anticipating events instead of dealing with the consequences.
In spite of international marine operations around the Horn of Africa commercial shipping continues to be exposed to increasing risks involving attacks by pirates and the hijacking of ships — not least because the pirates continually adapt their tactics and methods to changing circumstances.
SEC4 has many years of experience in the operational protection of commercial and passenger shipping, and for this purpose can draw on an up-to-date and comprehensive database consisting of its own risk analyses. This enables us to respond effectively and fast to new developments and regions of high risk. As a result our expertise covers not just protection against piracy in the Indian Ocean, we also offer security concepts and protective measures for new regional hotspots such as parts of the Gulf of Guinea off the coast of Nigeria.
In addition we provide both ships and shipping companies with up-to-date information on the current situation and threats in specific locations, information which of course also meets the requirements of the ISPS code.
