Pirates are adopting a new method of attack.
Rather than trying their luck, the latest attacks have demonstrated that pirates are now carefully targeting less protected vessels. So making sure that your vessels do not have any security weaknesses will be crucial to prevent hijack.

Will your security strategy stand the test against this new form of attack?

By far the best conference we have attended in 2010/2011”.


The Combating Piracy community gathered together once again at the hugely successful Combating Piracy Week in October 2011. The critical discussions were opened by President Farole of Puntland State of Somalia. Building on October’s vital debates, the 11th Official Update will be packed with updated approaches and the latest first hand case studies of recent attacks.

Designed for senior level industry representatives you’ll learn all you need know to maximise crew capability, implement effective hijack management techniques and apply the latest protective measures.

“One of the most informative conferences on piracy with wide attendance from all stake holders. The selection of speakers and the presentations were excellent”.

(NYK LNCE Ship Management (UK) LTD)
