Nexus Consulting Group is scheduling a webcast for the week of May 21- 25 on the topic of the Use of Force in Maritime Security.  Recently, a video surfaced of a maritime security company firing on Somali Pirates.  While the topic has been debated, Nexus was mistakenly identified as the company that took action.  If you are interested in learning about Use of Force and the legal issues, then contact Nexus at info@ncga.us and note your interest in attending the webcast and we will advise which sessions are available.  You can download the Use of Force Primer and follow along document here.

Having previously worked for a maritime security company,  I felt pretty informed on the Use of Force and Maritime issues.  After speaking to Kevin on numerous occasions, it was apparent that Kevin is an expert on Maritime Security and the industry at large.  I always come away from a discussion with Kevin impressed and having learned something new about maritime security.  Any knuckle-dragger can carry a gun and use it indiscriminately.  It is appropriate, disciplined use of a weapon that separates professional security from amateurs.  There are few security companies that I would recommend and that have the expertise to protect  ships while minimizing risk to ship owners. Use of force is an critical yet complex subject.  I recommend you take the opportunity to listen to an expert on maritime security and definitely take the opportunity to ask questions.
