Maritime Security and the Protection Available Against Piracy
 
Working in Maritime Security involves a number of dangerous environments with a variety of threats, all of which need to be addressed. Attacks happen regularly, and statistics indicate that they have increased and will continue to do so in certain areas. Working as a Maritime Security Operative (MSO) is therefore a difficult profession that carries with it a high likelihood of injury. However, this injury can be prevented with proper planning and preparation, which may call for body armor.
