Guards Are Set to Stay

Private security personnel are "here to stay" in the fight against increasing levels of crime at sea, according to industry rep­re­sen­ta­tive Peter Cook.­ Speaking at the Maritime Security & Defence conference at SMM in Hamburg on Wednesday, Cook said criminals were increasingly proactive, ubiquitous and adaptable at a time of shrinking naval ca­pabi­liti­es.­ Cook said there had been 157 piracy incidents up to 31 August this year, with 10 hijackings in Asia.
