MARITIME SECURITY (MARSEC)
With a proven and successful international track record, Knight Associates Ltd is capable of supplying maritime risk management consultancy, solutions and training to private and corporate clients for a range of anti-piracy, counter-terrorism, and counter-criminal maritime issues.
Commercial Shipping Operators
Whilst the intervention of international military navies and privately contracted armed guard services are having a profound impact on the threat of piracy-related activities, we at Knight Associates passionately believe in empowering commercial shipping operators with the knowledge, ability and training to conduct business activity within High Risk Areas.
By implementing the value-added services offered by Knight Associates, commercial shipping operators can ensure that their management, vessels and crews are prepared and self-sufficient to mitigate and cope with the business and physical risks posed by international maritime piracy, robbery and terrorism.
Training: Land-based staff and sea-going crew training in maritime risk mitigation and anti-piracy/robbery/terrorism procedures, to International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and ISPS standards. Training can be standardised throughout the fleet, and in line with company policy.
Security: Due diligence of Privately Contracted Armed Security Personnel (PCASP) for commercial ship operators, owners, and management companies. Ensuring that the skills, equipment, and capabilities of embarked armed guard teams are to the standards promised.
