The Nautical Institute publish a guide to making a vessel truly secure with a security culture that works both onboard & ashore.

Written by Steven Jones MSc BSc (Hons) MNI, Maritime Director of the Security Association for the Maritime Industry (SAMI), the book examines the threats to maritime trade, and to specific ship types, before discussing in detail how the ISPS Code came into being and its underpinning principles and requirements.

Subsequent chapters focus on the practicalities of security planning, shipboard procedures and equipment, and how to make security work - including the use of armed guards.

Masters, company and ship security officers have a pivotal role in making vessels secure. This book is aimed at those responsible for the welfare of vessel crews, cargoes and the ships themselves. It will help in the development of the ship security plan and explain how to make a vessel truly secure. 


Ships’ masters and crews have to balance the difficult and complex demands made by other people, ships, ports and cargoes. Explanation is given of the principles underpinning maritime security and guidance on putting those principles into practice, including the ISPS Code, advising on management systems that will ensure compliance with legislation. It is a practical guide – examining the ways to ensure there is no complacency in the execution of security plans, the use of armed guards and other issues of interest to all those involved in keeping ships safe from pirates, terrorists and other criminals.


The book can be ordered here.
