Commentary and Opinions

Counterfeiting has become a problem too big and too serious to ignore. Its impact is now felt directly throughout the world economy -- even in the United States military supply chain where we now know that “military capable” technologies have been counterfeited. Counterfeiting was easier to overlook, despite the enormous economic and security implications, when it was seen as a luxury problem, an affliction affecting the manufacturers of designer handbags and outfits. Luxury or not, it is clear that it is a problem that we cannot ignore.
Port security seems to be the forgotten child when it comes to preparing for disasters, at least in the public eye. Potential threats to aviation and mass transit generate many more conversations, and for good reason, but the risks posed to ports, primarily from cargo, cannot be ignored. A cargo container looks innocuous, just a square, metal box loaded with goods…right? This impression could not be further from the truth.

Thirteen monographs have highlighted industry and government’s joint effort to confront the challenges, and develop solutions to successfully focus on the historic mission to create a more prepared, responsive, resilient, safer and secure homeland.
