Global Maritime Risk Management

Real-time Risks | Real-time Solutions

     The maritime environment is unforgiving, where lack of risk information and errors in judgement can cost lives, cargo, property and add billions in extra expenses to your bottom line.  The global economy is connected through the oceans as 90% of all the goods we use daily travel via the ocean.  There is an incident involving a vessel every two to three days where over 2000 lives are lost each year along with hundreds of millions of dollars in cargo.  International Maritime Security Associates (IMSA) is forging the next generation of maritime risk management companies pioneering the use of human intelligence, technology and big data along with real-time information to help organizations improve their operations, reduce costs, and save lives.
