Mr. Kim E. Petersen, CEO of SeaSecure LLC.
Those unable to attend at the RHKYC on 19th March missed a most comprehensive presentation on the impact that the latest security legislation will have on maritime trade, given by one of the foremost experts in the field. Ex-Branch Chairman Eric Edmondson introduced Kim E Petersen, who has over 25 years of experience in domestic and international security and anti-terrorism activities. Kim is Executive Director of the Maritime Security Council, an international body representing the interests of over 65% of the world's ocean carriers. Kim is also CEO of SeaSecure LLC, a leading maritime security consulting company in the U.S.A., whose clients include some of the world's largest seaports and most of the major cruise lines. He is a former Captain in the U.S. Army's Special Forces and former federal law enforcement agent, whose career has included senior staff positions with Henry Kissinger and Alexander Haig. Following his work in law enforcement and special operations, Kim began directing international security and anti-terrorism activities for Princess Cruises. While with Princess he visited over 50 ports as part of an industry-first Port Vulnerability Assessment program. In 1999, he was asked by Renaissance Cruises to create an industry-leading global vessel and port security program. He is a maritime security advisor to the U.S. State Department's Overseas Security Advisory Council and to INTERPOL, an associate instructor at the US Federal Law Enforcement Training Center's (FLETC) Ship & Seaport Anti-terrorism Program, and a Visiting Professor at the UN's World Maritime University in Malmø, Sweden. Kim began by giving a brief review of acts of maritime terrorism over the past fifty years - the first of which being the assault on the Portuguese passenger liner "Santa Maria" by opponents of the Iberian fascist regimes of Salazar and Franco in January 1961. This introduced the practice of hijacking ships. Kim recommended a prioritised approach to implementing the Code, as there is little time remaining before it comes into force. Kim mentioned some of the Internet sources of threat intelligence shown below: Kim disagreed. One committee member discussed the risks involved in having a gun in the care of the Master, as used to be the case in days gone by. Another member present asked whether he believed that acts of terrorism would increase after the invasion of Iraq. Kim remarked that there is intelligence that indicates the readiness of terrorist cells to target merchant shipping following hostilities there. Asked what a Ship Security Officer can do when faced with an uncooperative Port Facility Security Officer, Kim said you can only do your best and report any non-compliance with the Code by a port to your company, who should forward the information to your flag state authority. He believed it was the intention of U.S. officials not only to audit their own ports but also to visit foreign ports to check the local authorities implementation of their own procedures. A "white list" of ports in compliance with the code will be drawn up by the IMO and ships arriving from an unlisted port, or even those having visited an unlisted port in the recent past, could expect lengthy inspections, if not outright refusals of entry. One attendee said that the Code appeared to have been developed and introduced without consultation with ship operators, but Kim stated that there had been extensive co-operation with IMO and several shipping industry NGOs, such as the ICCL.
