General Ship Security
MUSC provides training, consultancy and support for countering threats of weapons and drug smuggling, illegal immigration, human trafficking, theft and violent crime. Our clients include Customs, immigration, coast guard and other law enforcement agencies, port, ship and supply chain operators. Weapons and drug smuggling, human-trafficking and piracy all threaten ship security. The response to such threats need to be tailored to an individual client's needs. Container ships, cable-lay vessels, cruise ships, super yachts and tankers to name but a few have benefited from MUSC’s ship security solutions.
Mitigation of security threats require a planned and co-ordinated response from appropriately trained operators. Ship and port operators, Flag States and government agencies work with MUSC to assess and develop their security operations
