What a difference a year makes…

April 8th 2016
This month we bring you news that BIMCO have renewed their MOU with us for a second year of coordinated action. With this in mind we thought it would be a good opportunity to look back at how far we’ve come in a year.


Membership numbers

A year ago we had just over 100 members. This has grown, at last count, to 377.


Industry partnerships

We built CSO Alliance around the idea of coordinating action by the merchant marine to strengthen all our defences against organised crime. To that end we are always looking for ways that we can work with industry organisations to become more unified. As well as our ongoing partnership with BIMCO we have developed relationships with: CMF, North P&I, MTISC-GOG, ReCAAP and OBP.



During the past year we’ve run workshops in London, Athens and Limassol.

In addition to this we’ve also participated in a few events hosted by other people. We gave a talk at Hanson Wade’s Gulf of Guinea Security Summit in Accra, Ghana, as well as participating in a panel discussion at NATRANS Arabia and attending the Monaco Yacht Show.


More to come

We’ve got a few things in the pipeline that we can’t tell you about just yet, but rest assured the year to come looks set to be just as exciting as the last. We’ll keep you up to date with our developments as they happen in this newsletter.
