Despite the coronavirus pandemic, piracy and other crimes have surged in Asian waters in the first seven months of the year, many committed by a Philippines-based Islamist group linked to Islamic State, according to a report released on Wednesday.
Especially hard hit have been the Sulu Sea and coastal areas of the southern Philippines, said the report by Babel Street, an open source data analysis company based in Virginia.
I entered the maritime security world in 2009, becoming Intelligence Officer for Neptune Maritime Security (now the NeptuneP2P Group). In 2012, became piracy editor for SomaliaReport.com and in 2013 became editor of MarsecReview.com and intelligence consultant for CSO Alliance, which I left in 2019. I currently work with another UK maritime security firm as a consultant and have an interest in a cyber security concern in the UK.
