Private protection against piracy

As a forerunner in France of private services for the fight against piracy, GROUPE PROPRISK has expertise in high-risk areas which enables it to :

  • Carry out "piracy" risk assessment studies;
  • Verify the adequacy of the passive measures adopted on your ships with the Best Management Practices (BMP) recommended by the IMO according to the level of threat;
  • Propose active protection measures including the deployment of guards.

GROUPE PRORISK is authorised to deliver the Private Ship Protection Officer (PSPO) training.









It is approved by the French, British and Luxembourg states for the deployment of armed guards. Within this framework, we deploy agents permanently in the Indian Ocean and occasionally in the Gulf of Guinea.


Prorisk International LTD is ISO 28007 certified.

➡ We can also operate under other flags.
