Maritime security has become increasingly important in recent times, not least with the threat of piracy off the coast of Africa. This has led to a number of initiatives such as using armed personnel on ships, fitting vessels with a range of anti piracy deterrents and even suggestions of private navies to combat the on-going threat from pirates.
