Coalition Announces Stakeholders Conference
The International Maritime Security Construct (IMSC) has announced its second Stakeholders Conference, to be held Feb. 23, 2021.
The theme of this maritime security event is “Security Through Partnership,” which emphasises the international partnership between industry, governments, and shipping organisations to promote the freedom of navigation, reassure commercial shipping and deter aggression.
The conference will feature guest speakers from the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKTMO), U.S. Naval Forces Central Command’s Naval Cooperation and Guidance for Shipping (NCAGS) and maritime risk managers Den Norske Krigsforsikring for Skib Intelligence & Operations Centre (DNK IOC).
Topics include incident reporting procedures, reference tools for industry best practices, a regional intelligence and risk assessment brief, and an overview of IMSC engagement with other regional information operations. There will also be a panel session devoted to answering questions submitted by conference participants and other shipping industry members.
More than 17,000 ships per year pass through the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and more than 42,000 ships per year pass through the Strait of Hormuz, making partnership essential to the preservation of the international rules-based system on which so much depends.
IMSC’s mission of deterring and exposing state-sponsored malign activity in international waters covers the Arabian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz, the Gulf of Oman, the Arabian Sea, the Gulf of Aden, through the Bab el-Mandeb, and into the Southern Red Sea.
