In the second half of November 2023, the maritime security situation in the Southern Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, and the NW Indian Ocean appears to have deteriorated rapidly.

Due to this rapid development, we are hosting this special 15+15 webinar, where BIMCO’s Head of Maritime Safety & Security, Jakob Larsen, will discuss recent security incidents and the sometimes ambiguous narratives of what is actually going on and who is behind it.

The webinar will cover:

  • Who are the threat actors?
  • Who is at risk?
  • What are the implications for commercial shipping and, for example, the use of armed guards onboard?


This 30-minute webinar begins at 11:00 UTC (See your time zone here)
