Maritime Security 2018
Impact of C-TPAT on Port & Terminal Management May 18, 2018
The workshop offers overview of C-TPAT minimum-security criteria and case studies of successful C-TPAT implementation in daily port & terminal management. The U.S. and foreign-based Marine Port Authority and Terminal Operators (MPTO) must conduct a comprehensive assessment of their security practices based upon the C-TPAT minimum-security criteria.
At the workshop the port management professionals will share experiences how to implement C-TPAT accounting for complexity of marine port and terminal operations, how to apply security measures based upon risk. The workshop will teach attendees how to customize security plans depending on the C-TPAT member’s business model, the port’s geography, the commodities handled at the port and the terms and conditions of the lease agreement between the Marine Port Authority and the Terminal Operator.
Listen to international experts on implementation of ISPS code in daily maritime security procedures and learn in this intensive three day conference:
- How to detect security threats and implement security measures
- How to establish roles and responsibilities concerning maritime security for governments, local administrations, ship and port industries at the national and international level
- How to collate and promulgate security-related information
- How to provide a methodology for security assessments so as to have in place plans and procedures to react to changing security levels
Development and implementation of ISPS code were sped up drastically in the last decade as a reaction to the September 11, 2001 attacks, bombing of the French oil tanker Limburg and increased piracy on the high seas. Having come into force in 2004, ISPS code prescribes responsibilities to governments, shipping companies, shipboard personnel, and port/facility personnel to “detect security threats and take preventative measures against security incidents affecting ships or port facilities used in international trade.” The International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code is an amendment to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention (1974/1988) on minimum security arrangements for ships, ports and government agencies.
“The Naval Sea Systems Command is hosting the event to drive the development of innovative digital capabilities that will help the navy protect the sea, air, space, and subsurface domains in the twenty-first century. The Seattle event will connect developers to the needs of our nation’s navy and provide developers with access to Esri APIs and software developer kits (SDKs). This will allow developers to bring context to maritime security situations through access to location data and spatial analytics tools.”
