Ports play a crucial role in national economies by facilitating the import and export of goods via maritime trade. Their significance extends beyond mere trade, as they generate numerous direct and indirect job opportunities at local and national levels. Consequently, any disruption or hindrance to port operations can have a cascading effect on the overall economy. To mitigate potential risks, the implementation of advanced technologies like state-of-the-art inspection equipment, electronic tags, smart seals, and in-box sensors has been encouraged. These initiatives aim to minimize the arrival of harmful cargo at ports and address the diverse range of tactics that terrorists could employ to cause harm through seaports.This book is intended for professionals and researchers working in the field of maritime security. It provides a comprehensive understanding of port/port facility risk-based security assessment. The book focuses on the fundamental concepts related to maritime security and risk assessment, evaluates existing risk assessment approaches, and presents an analytical perspective on the controlling parameters involved in these approaches. It introduces and discusses various methodologies, highlighting their structure, distinctive features, and merits. At last, the book aims to address the pressing need for a comprehensive maritime security risk-based methodology that integrates the strengths of existing approaches while overcoming their limitations.
