Maritime Security

MDS is the maritime security division of CSS Limited.

Our Ship Security Consultants (SSC) are senior former military personnel (HM Royal Marines) and are available to respond to any security threat to the offshore maritime industry, particularly in the Gulf of Aden, the east coast of Africa and into the Indian Ocean.

Somali based Piracy has reduced significantly over recent years and now seems to be limited to occasional reported approaches and un-confirmed sightings.

With BMP4, the industry guidelines, proving to be almost 100% effective, our Security Analysts have re-assessed the current threat and how it can be approached and managed both with and without the use of firearms. Operational effectiveness is enhanced by full and willing participation from the vessels crew.

MDS will provide highly skilled consultants who will utilize the experience and knowledge of protection methods gained throughout their maritime career and will embark a client’s  vessel as ‘Ship Security Consultants’, to plan, train and advise the Master, ensuring the vessel steams safely through areas of Piracy. Our team is very conversant with all the high risk areas.

CSS Limited / MDS only deploy operatives with a minimum of 5 years’ experience, often as Team Leader, who have conducted over 30 transits.

MDS are committed to providing highly qualified Ships Security Consultants for a multitude of tasks, with 24 hours support from our Jersey based Operations team and for further information, please contact us at:
