Border security in the maritime domain often concerns the deterrence, detection and disruption of transnational security threats. As such the allocation of resources by just one nation or organisation may sometimes be insufficient in order to tackle the challenge international cooperation is essential. In regions where there are political uncertainties this is even more so, and all parties need to contribute in order to ensure that security is enhanced.
Panellists will discuss:
· What regulatory or legal challenges should be addressed in order to compliment border security organisations to cooperate more effectively?
· Which capability developments will have the greatest impact on enhancing inter-agency cooperation?
· Which industry solutions can best address the challenges of inter-agency cooperation?
· Which transnational threats can industry present more effective solutions to in order to better equip border security organisations to perform their tasks?
