Center for International Maritime Security

The Center for International Maritime Security (CIMSEC) is a 501(c)3 non-partisan think tank incorporated as a non-profit in the state of Maryland. It was formed in 2012 and as of 2016 has members and chapters in more than 30 countries. CIMSEC does not take organizational positions and encourages a diversity of views in the belief that a broad range of perspectives strengthens our understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the maritime domain.

“HA/DR operations entail unique, unscripted collaboration with joint and interagency partners with unity of effort and time as the common enemy.”
