BIMCO launches security network for members

Published: 06 January 2023

The BIMCO Security Network is a new network for security professionals. It is intended to bring together members’ security experts in order to share and learn from each other. 

The network will meet online three times a year to discuss issues related to physical security such as piracy and armed robbery, smuggling, stowaways, terrorism, large scale migrant rescues, war and armed conflict. Note, that cyber security is outside the network’s scope. 

The network is open to all BIMCO members, and we are particularly keen to see those of you responsible for security at operational level among owners, charterers and managers who are dealing with the topic regularly.  On an invitation basis, other stakeholders such as military authorities, private security vendors and academic experts may also join on a case-by-case basis. 

The network currently includes members from all over the world and will kick off on Thursday 12 January 2023 where the theme for the session will be threats emanating from Nigeria.
