Maritime Terror Risks

The RAND Corporation released a new report yesterday, Maritime Terrorism: Risk and Liability. The authors used a threat-vulnerability-consequence methodology and concluded that the greatest risks in terms of threat and vulnerability are:

  • Ferries: Onboard bombings
  • Cruise Ships: Onboard bombings (followed closely by standoff artillery assauts and food or water contamination)
  • Cargo Ships: Radiological Dispersal Device (i.e., dirty bomb)
