Seaports are complex and critical infrastructure facilities that require a wide range of security measures to protect people, property, and cargo. Securitas provides maritime security solutions to a variety of clients, including seaports, shipping companies, and supply chain companies.
Securitas Security Services Ireland delivers customised security solutions designed to expose security breaches, reduce theft and shipping loss and sustain profitability.
In a harbour or a busy port, there are many areas and functions where security is needed and where strict regulations like “The International Ship and Port Facility Security Code” (ISPS Code) are in place.
The ISPS Code covers a wide range of security measures, including:
- Perimeter security: Ports must have secure perimeters to prevent unauthorized entry. This may involve fencing, gates, and security cameras.
- Access control: Ports must have access control systems in place to restrict access to authorized personnel only. This may involve key cards, biometric scanners, and/or manned security checkpoints.
- Cargo security: Ports must have measures in place to protect cargo from theft and pilfering. This may involve cargo tracking and monitoring, as well as physical security measures such as seals and locks.
- Security training: Port personnel must be trained on security procedures. This includes training on how to identify and report suspicious activity.
Port operators are responsible for ensuring that they are in compliance with the ISPS Code. This can be a complex and challenging task, but it is essential for protecting the safety and security of maritime transportation.
Securitas can help port operators to comply with the ISPS Code by providing a range of security services, including:
- Security assessments: Securitas can conduct security assessments to identify and assess security risks at port facilities.
- Security planning: Securitas can help port operators to develop and implement security plans that meet the requirements of the ISPS Code.
- Security training: Securitas can provide security training to port personnel on a variety of topics, including ISPS Code compliance.
- Physical security services: Securitas can provide a range of physical security services, such as perimeter security, access control, and video surveillance, to help port operators protect their facilities.
Securitas' maritime security solutions are designed to meet the specific needs of each client. We work with our clients to develop and implement security plans that protect their people, property, and cargo.
Benefits of Regulatory Compliance
There are a number of benefits to regulatory compliance in maritime security, including:
- Reduced risk of security breaches: Regulatory compliance can help to reduce the risk of security breaches at port facilities. This can protect people, property, and cargo from unauthorized access, theft, and sabotage.
- Improved reputation: Port operators that are in compliance with the ISPS Code have a better reputation for security. This can make them more attractive to shipping companies and other customers.
- Increased revenue: Port operators that are in compliance with the ISPS Code may be able to generate increased revenue by attracting new customers and by charging higher fees for their services.
