Secure Waters Offers Trip Threat Reports

press release
Thursday, December 15, 2011

The Maritime Security Council has accredited the on-demand trip threat reports.


Piracy continues to be a major problem affecting large yachts and worldwide shipping concerns.  Pirate attacks are spreading from the Gulf of Aden/Indian Ocean east to Asia and to the west coast of Africa.  There have been reports of hijackings in South and Central America, Hispaniola, and the Caribbean as well.  Shipping companies and large yacht owners are searching for solutions to help them better understand the location and type of threats they face along their routes.  Secure Waters Security Group, Inc. now provides on-demand trip threat reports to help large yacht, cargo vessels, and shipping companies better understand the potential threats they may face worldwide.   

“Large yachts and cargo shipping companies can now pay for the reports they want and do not need to get locked into expensive, long term subscription based contracts.  The on-demand service provides a cost-effective solution to vessels worldwide.” commented Corey D. Ranslem, chief executive officer of Secure Waters Security Group.  “We are excited that the Maritime Security Council has given their accreditation to the trip threat reporting service and will be offering this service through their website to the worldwide shipping community.”

“The Maritime Security Council, after a thorough review, is pleased to accredit the new On-demand Intelligence Report Service offered by Secure Waters Security Group,” said Philip Murray, Chairman & President of the Maritime Security Council.  “The MSC recognizes this service as an essential next step in the continuing effort to provide the maritime industry with real-time, actionable intelligence at a reasonable cost.”

Secure Waters provides a solution that will help shipping companies, cargo vessels, and large yachts understand the location of the current hot spots along their route of travel along with other pertinent regional security information.  The intelligence reports are custom tailored to address each client’s route and other specific requirements.

Successful hijackings have increased dramatically over the past year with incidents spreading worldwide.  Ships and crews are being held in some cases for over 200 days.  The level of force used by pirates has escalated to a situation in which rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons are commonplace. Crew members are being held hostage—and in some instances killed. “Our main priority is to provide relevant information for the captain, owner and shipping company to make a better route decision that protects the crew, vessel and cargo,” said Ranslem.  “We can also provide additional services such as onboard security teams to enhance the vessels security protocols.”  The reports can be provided for specific routes, ports, specific regions or general regions of the world and are available through the Maritime Security Council website, the Secure Waters website, or by telephone.
