Maritime Anti Piracy (Print Version Here)

Training
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 S.O.P's
· Surveillance and counter surveillance
· Threat counter measures and S.O.P's
· Intelligence and threat analysis
· Route planning
· Communications
· 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

International Trends
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 country.

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.

ISPS Code
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 ships.

CAP - Country Awareness Program (Print Version Here)

Introduction
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 clients.

Benefits
· 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 environments.

Costs
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 employees.

Along with the crisis management, TacForce can also provide on-going security assessments and weekly intelligence briefings for an additional fee.
