The maritime transportation sector is responsible for 90% of global trade, valued at over $20 trillion. Security of ports, vessels, and cargo remains critical for sustaining maritime commerce. This lecture discusses the threat of terrorism, cyberattack, natural disaster, and piracy, and how international law has evolved to provide solutions. Learn how schemes including the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code and Container Security Initiative are important to maintaining the industry’s integrity. Finally, examine how militaries, regulators, and industry around the globe continue to develop new ways to counter emerging threats, especially in the face of recent cyberattacks.
