Maritime Security has become an important requirement for merchant’s vessels over the last decade due to the increased threats from pirates across the world. Though the maritime industry witnessed a decline in pirate activities, including that of Somali Pirates, in last few years, new threats are reportedly on the rise now in other parts of the word. Latest reports suggest a steady increase in the reported incidents of piracy and regions such as the Gulf of Guinea accounts for a high percentage of the incidents.
Increasing shipping piracy threats have resulted in huge losses for the shipping companies, forcing them to find new methods to battle the piracy. In order to tackle this problem successfully, many security companies have started to provide maritime security services, which are custom made for the present modern piracy at sea. In the recent past, several countries across the world have introduced legislation and rules to help the shipping companies to place armed guards on board the vessels to safeguard the ships from the acts of piracy. The new rules allow the vessels to seek the help of Private Maritime Security Companies (PMSC) that are capable of providing qualified security personals to keep the ship, crew and cargo safe. Across the world, there are many such maritime security companies which command a unique respect for the stellar security services they offer.
An organization can either incorporate security guidance into its general project management processes or react to security failures. It is increasingly difficult to respond to new threats by simply adding new security controls. Security control is no longer centralized at the perimeter. Meeting security requirements now depends on the coordinated actions of multiple security devices, applications and supporting infrastructure, end users, and system operations. Reengineering a system to incorporate security is the most effective action.
People want to travel on transport networks that are protected, secure and reliable. XylemSec works with the transport industry, government bodies and international organisations to maximise security and minimise the risk of disruption. XylemSec’s specialists can advise on and oversee implementation of thorough security plans for transport hubs such as airports, ports and railways.
XylemSec has the specialist capability of providing kidnap prevention and kidnap response services. The key element in this is the deployment of highly qualified, professional and resourceful men and women. These advisers respond to assist during negotiations, and in the design and implementation of loss prevention programmes.
XylemSec also deals with extortion incidents, deploying a member of the global team of consultants to advise and support a client through the wide range of extortion situations.
XylemSec's advisers normally come from a background of a senior position in the diplomatic or military service; and have been specifically trained in negotiation and management procedures during a crisis. They are therefore men of presence and gravitas, which are essential attributes to give confidence and reassurance to clients. They are fluent in the languages of the countries in which they operate, and have great experience from previous incidents, and knowledge of those countries.
XylemSec can provide the simulation by finite elements of the of impact of the trouble on your structure.
By finite elements also other situations can be simulated.
XylemSec can provide in-depth country reports and analysis, drawing on information from open and closed sources and the network of XylemSec staff on the ground feeding back real time information. Analysts concentrate on countries in which XylemSec has a full-time presence and thorough understanding of the geo-political environment. Reports provide insight into key threats, with practical risk mitigation advice designed to assist client’s decision making. Reports are usually bespoke to each client, and written with the client’s operating profile and objectives in mind.
We support national governments, foreign militaries and host nation security forces through the provision of personal security details and convoy escort teams for dignitaries, government officials and personnel as well as static security services for government compounds, emergency relief centres, military forward operating bases and other temporary and permanent government facilities around the world.
Through the years XylemSec has provided security services to many overseas governments.
XylemSec has worked extensively in the London insurance market delivering pre-risk consultancy to help develop contingency plans to reduce exposure in the event of a claim and improve communication between the insurer and the insured. This is predominantly where kidnap, extortion, piracy, product contamination, terrorism and special accident policies are in place. Crisis response and mediation services, providing 24-hour support in the event of an incident, particularly in kidnap or production contamination cases where there is a need for rapid deployment, are also provided.
XylemSec has great experience designing crisis management programmes, and in advising during the course of a crisis.
Effective crisis management involves implementing pre-planned and rehearsed procedures in order to provide maximum duty of care to staff involved, and to resume normal operations as quickly as possible with the least possible impact. All contingencies can be planned for, from fire damage to terrorist attack and by having an up to date and validated contingency plan, organisations can minimise the losses caused by a crisis.
The XylemSec crisis planning team works with the client to assess the company’s areas of vulnerability, agree the corporate aims and objectives, identify potential participants and their agendas, prepare and rehearse contingency plans, and allocate resources.
Based on our extensive experience in crisis management, we assist in advising on the best structure of a crisis management team and draw up a comprehensive crisis management plan to deal with the wide range of scenarios. Our perspective is strategic, spanning organizational readiness, prevention, response and recovery, and in this context, we develop detailed incident management plans.
Most of update informations are directed only at the surface-level problems and policy pains – not the root cause of the issue – and thus the process improvement efforts rarely succeed in the long term. Alternatively, agencies sometimes purchase an expensive software suite or bulky technology implementation to solve a process issue; but without addressing the root cause, these solutions seldom solve the issue at hand.
Instead, XylemSec needs to conduct an in-depth root-cause analysis. A thorough analysis of root causes might make the difference between a sustainable process improvement effort and the return of the same problem all over again. When you address the problem a second time, it typically requires a bigger investment of time and resources.
Identifying the basis of a particular problem often isn’t the most popular approach with senior managers, but a root-cause analysis is critical to ascertaining whether a particular issue requires a Band-Aid approach – or if it requires surgery.
Whether your operational problem is a budgetary issue, a quality problem, a time inefficiency or a new directive to implement, here are five tips and techniques XylemSec applies when conducts the next root-cause analysis at your federal agency:
1. Understand The Fundamental Issue
2. Dig Into Your Data And Numbers
3. Break Down Problems By Cause
4. Analyze The Details Of Your Failures
5. Prioritize Your Pinpointed Problems (And Their Costs)
