Maritime Security

A new book from the Nautical Institute designed to give advice and guidance on how to make a vessel secure.
The book examines the threats to maritime trade, and to specific ship types, before discussing in detail how the ISPS Code came into being and its underpinning principles and requirements. Subsequent chapters focus on the practicalities of security planning, shipboard procedures and equipment, and how to make security work – including the use of armed guards.
