Company security is the degree of resistance to, and/or physical protection from harm and external threats to the organization. It applies to any vulnerable and valuable asset, such as persons, dwelling, community, nation or organization.
The International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) is a comprehensive set of measures to enhance the security of ships and port facilities, developed in response to the perceived threats to ships and port facilities in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in the United States. HRA and critical areas is focused in relation to the JWLA21 and will be corrected accordingly when applicable.
In essence, the Code takes the approach that ensuring the security of ships and port facilities is a risk management activity and that, to determine what security measures are appropriate, an assessment of the risks must be made in each particular case. The purpose of the Code is to provide a standardised, consistent framework for evaluating risk, enabling Governments to offset changes in threat with changes in vulnerability for ships and port facilities through determination of appropriate security levels and corresponding security measures.
