Abstract [en]

Piracy can lead to risks so high that they, according to the InternationalMaritime Organization, are tolerable only if risk reduction is not practicable or isdisproportionate to the benefits achieved. Therefore, there is a need for reducing shipsecurity risks in relation to antagonistic threats such as piracy. The aim of this study isto identify challenges for ship operators when developing their ship security management.Furthermore, this study also investigates two central aspects in the analysis:understanding the threat and understanding how a security threat affects the crew andoperation of the ship. It is clear from the analysis that the importance of subjectiveaspects beyond a ship operators’ direct control is high. This seems to be the fact for allaspects of the risk management process. The situation is also dynamic as the securityrisk, as well as the risk perception, can change dramatically even though there are noactual operational changes. As a result, the ship security management process is highlyiterative and depends on situations on board as well as conditions out of the shipoperator’s control. In order to make ship security manageable, the risk management hasto put particular focus on methodological understanding, relevant system understandingand well-defined risk acceptance criteria as well as on including all levels of theorganization in the risk reduction implementation and on a continuous monitoring.
