Transport security is a vast area - from the safety of the basic infrastructure of ports, terminals and harbours, to the safety of the shipping company, the ship and its systems, and the crew. It is increasingly vital that all involved in the industry are aware not only of the basics of transport security, but also the latest dangers, the regulatory issues, and the methods of dealing with risk.
