Maritime security refers generally to measures taken for protection against unlawful acts such as piracy, armed robbery, terrorism and maritime violence. EMSA assists the European Commission by monitoring the implementation of Regulation (EC)No 725/2004 on enhancing ship and port facility security. It also provides technical assistance to the EFTA Surveillance Authority on ship security. EMSA’s inspection reports detail the maritime security measures, procedures and structures of the countries visited. The Agency also provides technical input on future inspections for the consideration of the European Commission. Another aspect taken into consideration is maritime sybersecurity with dedicated workshops and table top exercises for member states and industry representatives to test their responses in the event of a maritime cybersecurity risk.
