"With fifty percent of U.S. imports travelling by sea, ensuring that ships have a secure place to dock poses a challenge to American law enforcement. With such a heavy economic importance placed on U.S. ports, they have become a target for those wishing to inflict harm on the United States." (Luke Penn-Hall writing April 6, 2016 in the Cyber Brief). To which we at American Admiralty Books would add that of 77 materials considered strategic to our economy, 66 must be imported by sea. Port security is a topic that affects us all and should be a concern of every American. We share many of the concerns described in the Cyber Brief article and those of related panel writers linked to in this article. We urge all Americans to consider carefully the concerns described in the April 6, 2016 issue of Cyber Briefs
