Trading and chartering decisions don’t like waiting and money has its own speed; you are tasked with ensuring the safety of the cargo and crew. Your decisions are about protecting people and profit. You probably wear many hats in your job and you find yourself having to be an expert on international security.

As the lifeblood of the economy; maritime operations are 24/7/365 and you know all too well that weekends don’t mean anything to the crews that you support as they pass 065E on a Friday night.


You need a trusted advisor that you can turn to when you have to make crucial judgement calls on behalf of your business and that advice needs to be there when you need it.

The foundations: Maritime Security Threat Regions

Clear and concise high-quality threat analysis with real actionable value so you can make your commercial decisions fast with confidence.

We identify maritime risk regions by conducting independent, intelligence-led analysis reviewed regularly according to the threat.

Dryad Global World Map

Many factors determine how we define maritime security threat regions, these include geography and the way criminal and national forces operate.

The evolving nature of the threat and the shore-based enabling factors require constant monitoring; that’s why ATLAS INFORM is available 24/7/365 with a dedicated security expert on hand when you need them with the latest analysis and updates.

We do the work for you and ensure that we report in a way that is relevant to how you operate.

Regional security states

Easily monitor overall regional security levels with threat-specific risk ratings.  

Each region has an overview and a breakdown of specific threats:

Threat from Hijack/kidnap

Threat from shots fired

Threat from illegal boarding

Threat of suspicious approach

Threat from interference by military forces

Threat from environmental factors

Threat from geopolitical issues

Video script conveys this idea: Need to see all incidents involving an illegal boarding in the last 6 months in relation to a certain port? Or perhaps all kidnap incidents within 200Nm of another location?

Port Risk Assessments 

System Image5

Our extensive network of global agents and collaborators provide us with essential alerts and in-country updates about security issues that may affect port operations. Not all ports in the world require a security risk assessment and we focus on those that our clients need.

In addition to our baseline coverage, our subscription service enables you to nominate specific reports that are of importance to your operations.

To help you determine specific risks to your port operations our analysis includes a breakdown of threats as categorised below:

  • Threat of Robbery & Cargo Theft:
  • Threat of Illegal Boarding:
  • Threat of Hijack & Kidnap:
  • Threat from Terrorism:
  • Threat of Military Activity:
  • Threat of Migration & Trafficking
  • Threat from Fraud & Corruption:
  • Threats of Industrial Action:

Just like our incident reports you can see crime and piracy in context to the port and the wider region; set your parameters and download the report you need.


Country Risk Assessments 

Doing business internationally means relying on stability and open access to foreign countries. When stability falters, profits and investments can be left exposed and vulnerable. This makes any change in a country’s risk level an important strategic and operational indicator for international companies.
Whether it’s civil unrest, the potential for armed conflict or the precarious fiscal state of a nation, risk can be mitigated against with thorough contextual analysis and understanding.

Having awareness of high-level themes and trends within countries is essential if voyage planners are to take a holistic approach to understanding and interrogating risk ratings for threats to maritime and operations ashore.

Grasping the global geo-political situation and understanding it within the context of individual port operations is a huge ask if you’re also responsible for other areas of your company’s operations. If you need to move crews beyond the port boundary in multiple countries, will you have the time to conduct due diligence on the states involved?

Because of our teams’ extensive intelligence backgrounds we can identify, analyse and evaluate security threats to your supply chain within set time constraints and to a level that allows you to make decisions with confidence and with the highest assurances.

All of our products are clear, concise and bespoke to each client’s individual needs. They can also be accessed and downloaded via our intuitive portal.
