Maritime Vulnerability Identification Self-Assessment Tool

Risk Assessment Tools

The maritime module was developed in response to requirements outlined in the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002.  This Act mandates that any facility or vessel potentially involved in a transportation security incident conduct a vulnerability assessment and submit a security plan to the United States Coast Guard.  The Coast Guard defines a transportation security incident as "a security incident that results in a significant loss of life, environmental damage, transportation system disruption, or economic disruption in a particular area."

Our Maritime Vulnerability Identification Self-Assessment Tool (VISAT) is to be used by Company Security Officers, Vessel Security Officers and Facility Security Officers.  To request a User ID and Password to access VISAT, please send an E-mail to the Intermodal Operations/Risk Management Program ( with the following information:
