SECNET: Cross-border institutional cooperation for the improvement of port security
Priority Axis 4
Enhancing capacity building and cross-border governance
Specific Objective: 
OS 4.1.
Investment Priority: 
PI 11CTE
Typology: 
Standard
Overall Objective of the Project: 

The SECNET project’s main objective has been to improve the institutional competence of the Program Area’s ports and to lay the groundwork for coordinated and permanent port security at the cross-border level thanks to the use of innovative ICT tools. This was done by jointly developing long-term action plans and strategies, and by increasing coordination and cooperation between ports in order to improve their security and competitiveness.

Project summary: 

The main objective of SECNET, launched in October 2017 and led by the Autorità di Sistema Portuale del Mare Adriatico Orientale has been strengthening the institutional capacity of the ports of Trieste, Venice and Koper by creating the basis for coordinated and permanent governance of port security at the level cross-border, also with the application of the latest digital solutions.

Over a year and a half the three ports, with the help of the University of Trieste and the Littoral and the Executive Secretariat of the Central European Initiative, compared their operating structures with international best practices and jointly developed action plans and long term strategies, increasing their coordination and cooperating to strengthen their security and competitiveness. SECNET has thus strengthened the operational capacity and cross-border governance of port security also in order to meet the EU recommendations for infrastructure protection criticisms and the related management of the public and private partnerships.

 

Main results: 

Based on the identification of the strengths and weaknesses of the maritime structures of the Upper Adriatic the project offered technical competence for innovative and coordinated ICT applications in the field of improvement of IT security and port perimeter security. Concrete pilot actions have been put in place, such as the installation of radars, sirens, cameras, use of drones and penetration tests for defense from cyber attacks, which remain as SECNET's results in the daily port operations and triggered further developments now underway.

The main results of the project were presented and discussed during the final conference which took place Thursday 28 March in Trieste.

The latest challenges, threats and strategies to combat them in the field of physical security and port cyber security, are therefore the operational horizon of the joint Protocol for institutionalization of a system of cross-border cooperation in port security, which the representatives of ports of Trieste, Venice and Koper, and other interested administrations and companies, have signed on this occasion and that other maritime hubs such as Monfalcone and the Ports of Nogaro and Chioggia have demonstrated interest to adhere to.
