Last month, the Coast Guard and other agencies held a full-scale emergency response exercise in the Port of Los Angeles-Long Beach.  The exercise was designed to build relationships in the federal maritime security domain and update area maritime security planning. The main goal of the training is to practice, evaluate, and make recommendations for enhancing response efforts within the port.*

Against this back drop, Port Security Technology 2017 offers a unique platform that will provide a complete focus on major incident prevention and risk mitigation. Through case studies based presentations from port operators and senior law enforcement personnel, the conference will provide a better understanding of the risks to port and how they can be mitigated.

Port of Rotterdam will discuss their approach to traffic monitoring and vessel identification to optimize risk assessment and enhance cyber resilience. Identify key requirements to enhance situational awareness of cargo and ships for the future.

Transport for London will provide a focus on collaboration with port operators to establish strong resilience plans for transport networks. Understand how Transport for London approach business resilience and why they merge emergency arrangements, business continuity and security into one function.

Metropolitan Police Service will demonstrate how to enhance respond during a major incident by prioritising key elements such as command structure, decision making and record keeping.
