ESC Global Security Maritime Anti-Piracy Security Services

ESC Global Security

ESC Global Security is one of the world’s leading private maritime security companies, providing high-standard and privately contracted security solutions for vessels sailing in high-risk areas around the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Guinea.

We offer state-of-the-art security risk management based on the ability to define risk, assess security weaknesses and opportunities, and to choose the best security option for each client. The result is a focused maritime security solution that saves the customer time and money, while efficiently delivering success.

Maritime and anti-piracy security in the Indian Ocean

ESC Global Security provides a fully customised maritime security service in correlation with the actual threat risk. The package of services includes a balanced mix of on-site training, operational security techniques and tactics, non-lethal counter-measures and armed response.

ESC Global Security is:

  • Ready to legally embark and dispatch security teams from all the major harbours in the Indian Ocean and Red Sea regions
  • Licensed by governments around the Indian Ocean
  • Supported by professional indemnity insurance up to $5m
  • Committed to using deterrence primarily and force only as a last resort
  • Always following and exceeding the latest best management practices (currently BMP4)
  • Composed of European ex-military and law enforcement personnel with extensive experience from NATO, EU and UN missions, as well as vessel protection operations
  • An ISO 28007 security company

Vessel preparation and security measures

Our principles of vessel preparation for security include:

  • Physical hardening of the vessel (according to best management practices)
  • Security drills conducted with the crew of the vessel
  • Training levels of security teams always meet high international standards

Our principles for the use of force include:

  • Early and active use of visible, non-lethal measures
  • Clearly defined warning procedures
  • Use of lethal force is always the last resort
