Most yachts today are equipped with an ultra-modern and expensive high-tech security systems, e.g. night vision and infra-red detection, CCTV, alarm systems, on-deck motion detection, DDS, etc. Yachts are usually well prepared from a technical perspective to detect any intruder trying to bypass the access restrictions whether from the land or sea. At i.b.s.® we believe that such technical on-board security systems are a very good step in the right direction but only as good as the individuals operating them.
Therefore an essential part of the i.b.s.® crew training is to optimally prepare all the crew members by helping them better understand, use the implemented on-board security measures and safety procedures and thereby, to create an effective security perimeter. Yet this is by no means the sole extent of the crew training.
Crew training’s main focus should be a comprehensive understanding of ISPS, ISM, SOLAS and further international requirements at the sea and ports, plus having the knowledge of the methods (modus operandi) used by criminal groups onshore and offshore to circumvent implemented security measures. This ensures that everyone on board has a clear understanding of their own position during an incident and prepares everyone to behave appropriately in order to de-escalate, overcome and control dangerous situations.
To ensure that your crew is well instructed, prepared and ready to act in a manner that the hazardous situation may require before or during an incident.
To prepare all the individuals on board in advance for the planned voyage against organized crime and terrorism at sea.
To evaluate whether the ports and land destinations of your intended visit carry any hazards to yourself, your family, guests or crew.
To ensure that your implemented security measures and systems are right in place, up to date and fit the specific requirements of your superyacht.
To protect all the individuals on board as well as your high-value assets against organized crime (piracy) and similar acts (armed robbery) at sea.
