After the events of 9/11 the security checks for cruise liners were tightened in the United States of America. The ships were seen as a possible target for terrorist attacks. It is a very concerning thought that a huge cruise liner would be a target of a well planned and executed terrorist attack. Hundreds of passengers have their lives in danger and the possibilities for escaping are very slim. This creates a superb arena for determined and dedicated terrorists and criminals.
The security checks at the terminal or in the ship can be almost non existent and the security crew almost invisible creating a very easy access. When this happens the crews training and professionalism in recognizing a possible suspect and problem solving capabilities are in a extremely important role.
Because the ship is a closed environment, the lives of hundreds of passengers can be threatened. This makes training to be a key role in keeping the ship safe. The crew must know what to do causing the minimum amount of damage possible in various different situations.
To broaden your already existing security training, Haganah Security International offers you security training to increase the crews readiness to handle threatening situations.
We offer training and education in following topics:
Multi-cultural and ethical groups (The differences and things to consider in multi-cultural environments)
Event and night club security -seminar (8 h) (Security professional in an event)
and many other topics.
Multi-cultural and ethnic groups and different ideological groups create new challenges in the work environment, especially in the field of security. How an employee controls a situation is affected by his/her communication skills. Not only the verbal skills but psychological skills play a very important role. Our seminars that deal with ethnic groups and cultures concentrate on this issue. We teach methods of approach and proper communications as well as tell about cultural tensions. Our training will help your crew in problem solving and situation management. Communicational skills are much more than knowing several languages. It is a talent that requires psychological outlook and sensitivity that can be learned and practiced. We have been successful in teaching the security staffs of international night clubs improving their ability to solve problems and enhancing their safety at work.
What are the factors that can make a ship a target for a terrorist attack? Previously air planes have been the targets but the possibility for ships and terminals to be targeted has increased. Transporting a bomb in to the ship is also possible. By causing destruction, damages to passengers or hijacking the ship the terrorists can attract publicity to get their demands or requests heard, to show the company's inability to protect its customers or to pressure a certain country to agree to their demands.
