Cambridge Academy of Transport Presentation
Gerry Northwood, Director at risk management company MAST, gave a presentation to the Cambridge Academy of Transport at Churchill College on Monday 16 April making the case for Maritime Security. The presentation described the legal and security framework established in the Indian Ocean High Risk Area since 2008.
This included an analysis of the continuing Somali piracy, Yemeni and terrorist threat to shipping and an assessment of how effective the deployed military and private security forces are in countering the differing threats. A comparison with the threat to shipping in the Far East (including Sulu Sea) and the Gulf of Guinea demonstrates how political and legal issues place different demands on the ship owner.
