Venue: Washington Marriott Hotel, Washington, D.C.
Recent attacks in London and elsewhere make it clear that the threat of international terrorism remains very real. Incidents such as this summerís foiled plan to suicide bomb Israeli cruise ships underscore that maritime interests are very much on the target list.
More than one year into implementation of ISPS/MTA and other measures, how much safer are our ships and ports? What does the industry still need to do to protect itself? What funding is available? What regulatory changes are in the works? What steps are enforcement agencies taking to make sure that security plans are more than words on paper?
These are some of the issues that will be addressed at Marine Logís Maritime & Port Security 2006 conference. The new security regulations affect everyone in the maritime industry. This conference will bring together port and maritime industry executives, security specialists and regulatory and enforcement officials for two days of intensive discussion and networking.
