The complexity of identification and control of these risks and dangers are equally enormous and challenging. The security of life and facilities on ship, ports and terminals in marine environment is a function of the effectiveness of their operations ability to identify and control maritime transportation system, which plays a significant impart in ship owners role on crew security, port and maritime environment security. However, as a result of the increasing level of terrorism in the world, it has become very necessary to pay serious attention to the type, source and destination of the risk, weapon that can affect crew, ship and ports security.
