Abstract:

<p>Modern seagoing vessels have innovative high-tech systems for safety and security, but the level of professionalism of the ship&rsquo;s crew as a whole should be taken into account. Integrated modern security and safety navigation systems cannot replace the human action of the individual seafarer, and in this connection, the issue of preparing the human factor to ensure the physical protection of the ship in the event of an attack during navigation and in ports is particularly relevant.</p>
