Abstract: Research and development in WaterSide Security (WSS) are being carried out in many countries around the World. However, the R & D activities are frequently scattered and uncoordinated from country to country. Therefore, there is still a strong need for a better coordination of development of equipment and procedures for WSS and for exchange of most recent research results in order to obtain a world-wide view over the state-of-the-art in technologies and their applications. To meet this need several conferences have been held over the past decade ranging from its early start in Poland and via 3 international conferences on WaterSide Security held in 2008, 2010 and 2012, to the situation of today. This presentation will comprise an exposition on criminality at sea and its abatement today with a concentration on terror and piracy. What have we learned and what can we do.
