Maritime Security - securing ports, products and shipping

The security of the international maritime sector has become a global priority and the session will focus on the role of the U.S Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) and it’s component agencies in ensuring the safe maritime-related movement of goods throughout the nation and overseas. The U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Customs and Border Protection are the lead agencies for DHS, and are given the mission of maritime law enforcement and regulation of international trade. Securing the global supply chain, while ensuring it functions smoothly, is essential to our national security and economic prosperity.  This vital system provides the goods that feed our domestic critical infrastructures and supports our way of life.  Other nations worldwide also rely upon goods transported by the global maritime supply chain system, making it a global asset that all stakeholders must collaboratively work to strengthen and protect.
