Yacht Security: Disarming the Media Hype

Yacht Security: Disarming the Media Hype | Maritime piracy | Scoop.it
There is no doubt that piracy is a real threat that requires a definitive and robust response. Few disagree that media reporting is vital in maintaining the debate over the security of vessels to esure safe passage. But, does the mainstream media distort and sensationalise the real dangers? Is there a disproportionate focus on piracy while other threats remain unreported? Likewise, how fair is the portrayal of security firms simply as ‘hired guns’ or ‘brutes in suits’, and where do armed guards sit in the broader picture of maritime security? In this two-part feature, OnboardOnline consults a wide range of leading industry professionals, including regulators, intelligence agencies and maritime security providers, to dispel some myths around the perception of threat (both at sea and in port) and misconceptions about the industry’s response, to get a clearer understanding of maritime security in today’s world.
