Yachting security conference set for Virgin Islands

The Maritime Security Council will host the 2010 Yacht Industry Security Conference in the U.S. Virgin Islands in December.

The focus of the conference, scheduled for Dec. 7-8 at the Yacht Haven Grande Marina in St. Thomas, is identifying security best practices appropriate for the yachting industry and reducing opportunities for the industry to be a vector for successfully introducing threats into yachting marina host countries.

The program will include panel discussions on topics as such "Weapons on Board - Benefits & Liabilities" and "Impact of Caribbean Regional Security on the World Stage." There also will be presentations on the Coast Guard's Small Vessel Security Program and on "New Technology & Innovative Approaches to Security."

The Charlotte, N.C.-based Maritime Security Council is a non-profit that represents ocean carriers, cruise lines, port facilities and terminals, logistics providers, importers, exporters and related maritime industries throughout the world.
