Port Security

An integrated security system (ISS) will optimise global port security (26/03/2014)

Security threats, sabotage and acts of terrorism are becoming progressively more advanced throughout the world. The marine industry is seeing increasing piracy attacks on sea vessels globally and especially off the coast of East Africa, and ports are becoming more vulnerable to threats to national security.

It is therefore vital to enhance and optimise the security of ships and port facilities worldwide. Technological advances, particularly leading edge developments in integrated security systems, are being used to do this.

Security – a global concern

Amid speculations of hijacking, sabotage and psychological issues of the passengers and / or crew, which have dominated the news recently around the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines MH370, security threats in the transport industry have become a matter of international interest. EES believes that the design and implementation of leading edge security systems, with optimal, integrated and automated control, will go a long way to benefitting all transportation hubs globally. In this regard, EES has been focusing on shipping and port security in the form of an Integrated Security System (ISS)
