Abstract

Overall, maritime safety encompasses the protection of ports, ships, and their communities against unintentional dangers and harms (e.g., storm at sea), whereas maritime security encompasses the protection of ports, ships, and their communities against deliberate dangers and harms (e.g., piracy). The two can be complementary or conflicting.
