Maritime Anti Piracy (Print Version Here)
For the conduct of Maritime Anti-Piracy training we have
identified instructors that not only have the operational skills
and experience to provide top quality training, but who are also
highly committed, and have the communication skills and
personality to excel in working with the foreign personnel. They
are tactical operators, with extensive experience in teaching
these skills to foreign military and police forces.
There are now a number of conventions that are really being
enforced by most governments around the world. (ISPS Code - See
explanation below) These all impact on any potential government
or none government ports, maritime or shipping line client and
what can be offered to them.
There are number of areas that we can focus on to assist any
government or none government maritime or ports user:
· Security assets to 'ships underway' and 'alongside'
· Port security assets and advice on security infrastructure and
· Surveillance and counter surveillance
· Threat counter measures and S.O.P's
· Intelligence and threat analysis
· Route planning
· Emergency response and Crisis Management
· Security assessment of ports and client flagged ship
· Security plans and training to mitigate threats
· Audits of current security plans and S.O.P's
· Conducting desktop and physical exercises of all ports and
client flagged ships
The Asian Regional Forum on Capacity Building of Maritime
Security held in Tokyo in December 2005, highlighted the
different approaches that nations take to maritime security and
which national government organisation coordinates and takes
responsibility for maritime security. Amongst countries that are
signatories to SOLAS and have ratified and implemented the ISPS
Code, the national legislative frameworks vary from country to
A number of countries, particularly in the Asia- Pacific region
and the Indian sub continent, are primarily focused on the
response side of maritime security threats. This in most cases
involves a very heavily Defence-orientated national structure,
and is in contrast with other countries which focus on risk
identification and mitigation.
The Baltic and International Maritime Council (BIMCO) also use
maritime security provisions to incorporate the risks associated
with drug smuggling, piracy and armed robbery against ship,
stowaways, migrant smuggling and the threat of terrorism.
Another issue that is receiving a lot of international scrutiny
is the importance of the primacy of sovereignty of states in
relation to the security of sea-lanes. Nevertheless, to tackle
newly emerging maritime security threats there is a role for the
user states and for private companies (both shipping and
insurance) to ensure that sea-lanes remain secure. Malaysia and
Singapore have indicated in a number of international forums
that there is a responsibility of all users of the Malacca
Straights to implement stringent security arrangements. However
tying in with these governments and shipping companies is not
easy. Usually those tied in with Lloyds or other insurance
companies that cover shipping get this work referred to them.
The International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) Code is an
international initiative to mitigate risks to shipping from the
worldwide escalation of terrorism that were manifested in the
events of September 11, 2001. The Code requires governments to
implement and administer a ship and port facility security
regime. Of special importance is the Convention for the
Suppression of Unlawful Acts against the Safety of Maritime
Navigation 1988 (SUA Convention). This Convention was developed
in response to growing concerns during the 1980s about unlawful
acts which threaten the safety of ships and the security of
their passengers and crews, with reports of crew being
kidnapped, ships being hi-jacked, deliberately run aground or
blown up by explosives.
The SUA Convention:
· establishes a legal regime applicable to acts against
international maritime navigation that is similar to the regimes
established against international aviation; and
· makes it an offence for a person unlawfully and intentionally
to seize or exercise control over a ship by force, threat, or
intimidation; to perform an act of violence against a person on
board a ship if that act is likely to endanger the safe
navigation of the ship; to place a destructive device or
substance aboard a ship; and other acts against the safety of
CAP - Country Awareness Program (Print Version
CAP was designed as a proactive preventative measure to prepare
employees deploying on assignment to a foreign country or to a
remote locality. CAP provides a comprehensive package of
educational services to help employers protect their most
important human capital investment.
CAP is a modularized format of presentations that can be
tailored into a course designed to meet client specific needs.
This modular format provides enormous flexibility in the
delivery of the training.
CAP offers a variety of skills that focus on risk prevention and
risk minimization. The personal security lessons provide the
client with the ability to understand the risks they face and
what practical steps should be taken to minimize such risks. The
first aid training is focused on reducing the consequences of
injury, by giving the client the confidence to administer such
aid as is required, to both him/herself and to fellow employees.
The interactive approach to providing such training encourages
involvement by the clients and thus helps to build a team
spirit. This is achieved through a combination of feedback and
practical exercises. The course has a prevention and cure
focus, hence providing the relevant information on how to
minimize risk exposure and maximize the ability to deal with
such a hazard.
CAP also covers risk management principles and theory and keeps
it at a sensible and realistic level for all participants
enabling them to practically apply it to situations that they
may encounter. We also use realistic scenarios in order to show
how these risk management skills work. We find that this and the
inclusion of a basic field medical segment, provides a more
comprehensive approach to minimizing the possible risks faced by
· It has been found that organizations providing such training
to their personnel will also benefit with their insurance
premiums and general morale of their employees.
· Education is a proactive and effective way to help mitigate
the risks in any complex and or hostile environment, and CAP
serves to expand the number of options available to staff
operating in such environments.
· CAP can psychologically prepare clients before
they enter these environments.
· CAP can also be used by clients as a cost-effective filter for
personnel who may not be suited to operating in such adverse
The costs involved with CAP training, is dependant on the
location where the training is to be conducted. It is strongly
advised that the initial training be conducted prior to their
departure. This will enable the parent company to identify
personnel who are not suited to deploy into the target country.
Crisis Management (Print Version Here)
The operating environment for companies doing business in the
Middle East and Africa is becoming increasingly hazardous. With
the on-going conflicts Afghanistan and Iraq and the uprisings in
the Middle East and Northern Africa the regions have become much
less stable over the past ten years. Even in relatively secure
countries, incidents happen with alarming frequency that
threaten to disrupt a company's operations. Kidnappings of
foreigners are becoming more and more common, occurring in such
diverse countries as Kenya, Nigeria. Suicide bombings and
targeted political assassinations put employees at risk. Al
Qaeda is an ever-present threat in all these regions.
Even non-terrorist related incidents can quickly destabilize
countries as governments struggle to deal with the outfall. The
on-going stand-off over nuclear materials production in Iran
could quickly undermine the stability of the region.
Environments that are considered calm one day can turn volatile
overnight, as in the up risings in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and the
ongoing problems in Syria. In each of these countries TacForce
were on the ground with in 24 hours to commence evacuations for
our valued clients. Tacforce provided evacuation of
non-essential personnel from these countries and then provided a
safe working environment in order to maintain business
continuity. These incidents demonstrate how quickly situations
can escalate and put personnel, equipment and assets at risk.
TacForce International can now offer our Crisis Management
service. For a small yearly retainer fee, TacForce International
will provide an on-call security advisor for Global services.
Should there be a general or specific threat to your company
assets in any country throughout the region, TacForce will
utilize its political and military contacts throughout these
regions, advanced intelligence services and security specialists
to advise during the crisis. If necessary, TacForce will deploy
its experts in security, hostage negotiation and conflict
resolution to help resolve any situation, or in the event of a
major disturbance and the situation has deteriorated to an
unsafe level, we will assist in the evacuation of company
Along with the crisis management, TacForce can also provide
on-going security assessments and weekly intelligence briefings
for an additional fee.
