Conference Documentation: International Port Security

"This year's 6th annual International Port Security conference, hosted by SMi, will convene in London on 3rd and 4th June. With the current threats and tragedies occurring in the Mediterranean, never has such a conference been so current and relevant. With continued illegal migration into the EU through sea borders there is a need for the maritime security community to collaborate and further strengthen relations in order to boost security.

There will be a range of topics discussed at the conference in June; these include international port security case studies, strategy and policy in order to comply with the ISPS code as well as presentations from NGOs on seafarers welfare and the effects and causes of maritime piracy. Such a diverse range of topics will allow delegates to learn best practices for port security as well as address the more practical issues and human issues of day-to-day port security."
