What We Do


Protection [back to top]



M-P.A.C.T.'s roots, personnel, and focus were borne of and remain firmly anchored to our collective maritime background and experience. With a plethora of talents that include commercial shipping and ship operations, regulatory and inspection responsibilities, law enforcement and tactical operations, as well as marine incident response and mitigation, our professional security experts and instructors posses the collective breadth of knowledge to solve your maritime security and emergency response needs.

In this day and age, the threat of international terrorism as well as commercial espionage can never be far from the minds of maritime business owners and managers. Most companies devote considerable resources to protect their interests from intrusion, injury or theft. However, for companies without a well thought out security strategy, the procedures and protocols implemented are too often in conflict with the smooth flow and efficiency of business. Commonly, the resulting product is a bit more security for the price of a diminished bottom line.

M-P.A.C.T will help you develop a sound security plan from the ground up or work to refine and improve your companies present plan. Our services include hardening and protecting sensitive or high value sites with region-experienced operatives who understand both local customs along with security issues. Through our strategic partnerships, we are able to ensure the security of your on scene and traveling staff. Through our alliances we are also able to provide cutting edge security systems to protect your facility. Ultimately, we will help you to establish and maintain a full customized security program that is workable for you and your employees.



Auditing [back to top]


Regardless of statutory requirements for performing audits of an existing vessel or ship security plan, a wise maritime manager wants to know just how well those important plans and processes actually perform. For the vessel security officer, and in particular for company security officers faced with several of these plans to oversee, the task can become overwhelming. Our maritime security professionals can help get this process back under control. We understand the industry we work in and the time line world it reflects. We also understand that as important as security audits and assessments are, the demands of maritime commerce make it vital that this process does not negatively impact tight schedules any more than necessary. Additionally, our security professionals have experience in building and implementing practical, cost effective ship security plans. M-P.A.C.T. has professionals who have worked from the regulatory side of the industry and are fully knowledgeable of what regulators expect to see. This unique range of experience will give your company the most comprehensive view in the industry how just how well your vessel and ship security plans are working.

We offer the most experienced people in the field to help you look at your security plans through the eyes of an audit process, and to assist in anticipating the next steps in making your facility safe and secure.

    2. It is designed to provide companies with a customized approach resulting in a universal set of company maritime security protocols.

    3. The process and execution of the program is totally transparent in that all work conducted - security plans, internal audits and findings, administrative files, personnel training records, as well as security drills & exercise calendars are fully accessible for client monitoring via M-P.A.C.T.’s secure, password protected Client Portal.
