Consulting, Investigations and International (CI&I):
Through its Consulting, Investigations and International (CI&I) division, Andrews International (AI) provides strategic security solutions for large yachts, oil and gas operations, specialized maritime carriers, and military and government agencies. Our personnel develop tailored security plans inclusive of consulting options, shipboard operational security, and maritime security training programs.
AI’s maritime security experts ensure compliance with regulatory agencies like ISPS and MTSA by conducting facility and vessel compliance audits, designing security protocols for Class society and flag state approval, integrating corporate response into security plans with Company Security Officer-emergency response plans, assessing travel risk with threat analysis reports, and completing in-depth vulnerability assessments. AI also offers security technology recommendations to clients and is experienced with installation and operation of short and long range camera systems, access control and intrusion detection systems, cargo and passenger screening programs, and facility management software.
By bridging the gap between security planning and customer care, AI has successfully navigated threat operations, special events, and charters for many maritime clients. Our experienced team members train and develop specialized security personnel to provide armed and unarmed security for all vessel types and concierge-level officers for special events and charters. These specialized officers are not only thoroughly trained in customer service and crew integration for seamless presentation, but also are well-versed in flag state laws, international vessel defense laws, and safety measures as well. These are capable and confident individuals who will keep your vessel safe while reducing insurance costs.
In addition to the aforementioned security planning and execution capabilities, our maritime security experts provide a variety of training programs required under the ISPS or MTSA regulations, ranging from defensive tactic programs to shipboard medical protocol courses. We can customize these training programs for each crew and each ship’s specific operational needs. We work with each client during planning and implementation of the programs, identifying opportunities for improvements and incorporating changes seamlessly.
As former members of the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Marines, and maritime law enforcement agencies, our experts understand the challenges of protecting assets in a maritime environment and are prepared to translate their collective knowledge into efficient and effective solutions for maritime industry clients.
