What's Inside Your Security Portal?

You want to be able to log on to a secure system to get an instant appraisal of the situation. You cannot afford to be bound by time zones when the commercial department needs an immediate answer. The owners might need your reasoning (and deeper understanding) to show that the risks are not as severe as they might seem (as so often is the case .. .and opportunities are lost) so you need reports and information to help you communicate this.

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 and 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 threats and shore-based enabling factors requires constant monitoring, which is why ATLAS INFORM is available 24/7/365, with a dedicated security expert on hand when you need them equipped 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.

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

3. Port Risk

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.

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.

4. Country Risk

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 is 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?
