Modern day piracy and other ongoing threats made by terrorist and criminal organisations present complex security challenges for many of our maritime clients. Our maritime ship security officers and teams provide 24/7 security to mitigate risk to each vessel, crew and client and to guard against these threats using all security measures, intelligence, technology, planning and defensive measures, at their disposal.

Anti-piracy is one of the most important aspects of maritime security. We ensure our maritime security and counter-piracy service helps our clients combat this threat, arming them with our maritime security experts, piracy awareness training and the capacity to build their defences. Maritime awareness allows our clients to know what is happening at sea and recognise threats in time; we have developed this service to provide everything required to give our clients maritime situational awareness at all times while at sea.



Our maritime security service and training ensures a vessel's security and stowaway prevention procedures are enforced so the threat of maritime crime is combated using around the clock over-watch and security, providing support to the master and crew, for the prevention of crime and stowaways.

Depending on the definition of 'maritime crime', these threats can be distinguished between using the following categories; criminal activities directed at vessels or maritime structures, including piracy and sea robbery, criminal activities that are enabled by the use of the seas such as trafficking and smuggling of people and goods, criminal activities that violate coast states sovereignty such as the unauthorised entrance of a state's internal waters, or criminal activities that violate international law. These maritime crimes can be effectively combatted and crew can be made aware of specific and general dangers of organised crimes at sea, all that could target vulnerable vessels and crew. Our program of services and training help our clients effectively deal with this.



  • AG Global Strategies' experienced professional Ship Security Officers (SSO), are an important addition to any type and size of vessel, while 'at sea' and when 'at port'. Additionally, is an important entity under the International Ship and Port Facility (ISPS) code.
