Transit Risk Assessment / Intelligence Reports on-demand

Ιn the regions of the Gulf of Guinea and the Indian Ocean, risk assessments are carried out in line with the Intelligence Cycle model (Planning, Collection, Process, Analysis, Dissemination). The process includes gathering of raw data regarding piracy activity and trends from attacks against transiting vessels, which are carefully processed and analysed at a later stage. Piracy activity is closely and constantly monitored by the Maritime Intelligence Dept, which collects information from both open and closed sources, as well as via contracted intelligence platforms and national maritime authorities/canters.
