Piracy and Security

As governments and industry continue the struggle against crew kidnappings of West Africa and cargo thefts in Southeast Asia, questions have arisen over the highest profile victory of piracy. After five years without incident, piracy off the coast of Somalia may have breached its containment. Increased security comes at a price, and the industry is in no position to increase its operating costs, but some indicators on land in Somalia suggest the region could incubate a piracy resurgence.
