The article discusses the state of maritime security 10 years after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the U.S. The International Ship and Port Facility (ISPS) Security Code imposed on the marine industry as a result of the 2001 event reportedly has created a new level of bureaucracy and more paperwork. Apart from piracy, which the ISPS has not reduced, the industry is described to be a relatively safe place. That airlines are the preferred targets of terrorists is pointed out.
