Understanding Maritime Security Risks
Maritime transportation faces an array of security risks, including piracy, cargo theft, unauthorized access, and geopolitical tensions. To address these challenges effectively, you need a clear understanding of the unique risks your operations may encounter. This is where a maritime security risk assessment comes into play.

Tailored Risk Mitigation Strategies
Once the risks are identified, we work closely with you to design customized mitigation strategies. Our armed security guards play a pivotal role in this process. They are trained to respond swiftly and effectively to security threats in real time, ensuring the safety of your personnel, vessels, and cargo.
"We will just call the cops" - is not longer going to cut it
Granted, there was a time when that was a sound strategy. Unfortunately, that time has long since passed. While Valentis works to create and nurture a solid working relationship with local police departments, the fact is those departments are stretched to their limit due to manpower shortages. This is a nationwide problem that is only getting worse. Some major city’s police departments are working at a thirty percent shortage of active personnel. They lose cops faster than they can replenish their rosters.
It is not their fault. They are dealing with the ever evolving normal and doing their best.
Calling 911 in response to a dangerous situation could very well take over 15 minutes. By then, it is too late. You are left to deal with the aftermath.
