Apr 1, 2003 12:00 PM
Two security companies, SeaSecure LLC and RiskWatch Inc, have formed a joint development project to create the first maritime risk assessment software tool for seaport and shipping security. RiskWatch SHARK, or RiskWatch for Seaport and Shipping Antiterrorism Risk, will have immediate applicability in assessing physical, personnel, and information security programs at United States and international seaports, as well as within the shipping industry for carriers and cruise lines.
Standardization that RW-SHARK provides will let information about security be benchmarked and will provide instant snapshots on how seaports are complying with security guidelines. This standardization enables maritime facilities to conduct regular, frequent security assessments quickly and cost-effectively, accounting for physical, environmental, or policy-driven changes that may affect risk levels.
