Monthly Intelligence Reports

Monthly Intelligence Report October 2020

The October issue of our monthly intelligence report covers incidents that took place between September 1 - 30, 2020, in three focus regions:

  • West Africa
  • Western Indian Ocean (including the Persian Gulf)
  • South East Asia

This month's risk and threat assessment

In the report's assessment, the main incidents are put into a broader context to highlight current threat levels and potential changes for maritime operations. Moreover, the report includes forecasts that cover the main concerns in the coming weeks.

Focus topic: Current developments in the Mediterranean

The Mediterranean has generated a lot of headlines in recent weeks. An ongoing dispute between Turkey and Greece, irregular migration and other issues could affect the overall security situation in parts of the Mediterranean in the coming months and years. In our focus section, we are looking at two of those non-traditional security threats: migration from Libya and GPS interference, which are both a concern to merchant vessels operating in this area.
