Iran developing Uranium projects in Venezuela and Bolivia, with the support of Cuba. Ciudad del Este (Tri-Border Area: Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina. A heaven spot for international terrorist groups. Hezbollah receives around US$10 million dollars annually from narcotics operations. Hezbollah has established alliances with drug cartels from: Mexico, Colombia and other Regional Criminal Organizations in Central America and the Caribbean. “In 2001, American troops entered Kandahar, and the international press followed close on their heels. Reporting from a house in Kandahar used by Al-Qaeda, CNN correspondent Christiane Amanpour displayed a picture poster of the Iguazu Falls: „While we were scouring this now-abandoned house, we came across this picture on the wall. These are the falls of Iguazu in Brazil, and this is where US intelligence officials say they‟ve identified terrorist cells that they say are linked to Osama bin Laden and the Al Qaeda network.‟ Not only had Al-Qaeda become a known global actor, but so too had the Tri-border area.” - Thomaz Guedes da Costa www.interportpolice.orgTuesday, July 24, 2012

  9. 9. Emerging Threat to Homeland Security in the Middle East Nearly 60% of cocaine sold in Europe transits through weak West African states such: Niger, Mauritania, and Guinea Bissau. Since 1990, this region has been used drug trafficking. West African region and expading to the east, are becoming a haven for a shadowy group called Al Qaeda in the Islamic Magherb (AQIM). There are indications that terrorist groups and Latin America drug cartels are working together. Executives Jets, Twin Engine Turboprops, and aging Boeing 727s (carry up to 10 tons) are crossing the Atlantic with drugs. The Globalization of Terrorism is now linked links Colombian FARC, Hezbollah, Russian Organized Crime, Uranium with AK-103s, and cocaine with oil. Hezbollah has established alliances with Central America criminal gangs, Mexican drug cartels and organized crime, Colombian drug cartels and other regional criminal groups. Afghan heroin has been a strategic financial resource for the Taliban, al Qaeda and its affiliate in Pakistan, Central Asia, Africa and Latin America. In the last few years, governments El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico and Central America are on alert as evidence grows that al Qaeda members are travelling in that region and looking for recruits to carry out attacks in Latin America, the potential last frontier for international terrorism. The Brazilian government has reported that al Qaeda members have established an active presence in South America’s largest country, as have militants associated with Hezbollah. www.interportpolice.orgTuesday, July 24, 2012
  10. 10. Emerging Threat to Homeland Security in the the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia Extremism in Yemen, regional tension and new geopolitical developments in the region, and the new emerging-integrated-alliance-globalized of criminal and terrorism organization (West-East) will establish new security challenges to the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and other countries in the region. Quoting: The rise of AQAP poses the risk of radicalization among immigrants entering the UAE from Africa through Yemen, said Marie Bos, the groups chief Gulf analyst and a former researcher on the UN Development Programme in the UAE. "Yemen is an open door to the region so you have a lot of people coming from the horn of Africa through Yemen, hoping to make it in the Gulf states", she said. That was part of the impetus for Saudi Arabia signing a deal last year to build a security barrier on the Yemen border, she said. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian who tried to blow up an airliner bound for Detroit last month, had studied in Yemen before moving to Dubai early last year, returning to Sanaa in August where he allegedly planned the attack. Paul Burke, a terrorism and security expert based in Abu Dhabi, agreed that the radicalization of immigrants arriving through Yemen was a potential concern. Authorities had to watch out for two types of people, he said - those with a predisposition towards st extremism, and those likely to be influenced by other extremists. st-Ea e t ics: W Narco Key Issues: and es Immigration ll ianc ri sm A Trade t erro , New Investment C rime Impact: an ized e Org Transportation from th p act Borders and Im Structures t ions Im plica rity Secu www.interportpolice.orgTuesday, July 24, 2012
  11. 11. Emerging Threat to Homeland Security in the the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia As the central leadership of Al-Qa’ida is weakened and challenged, the terrorist movement is looking to partnerships in Saharan and Sub-Saharan Africa to re-group and re-energise itself. Despite greater co-operation, there seems to be an unresolved tension between transnational aims of Al-Qa’ida-core and the local grievances of African partners. Following the alliance with Al-Qa’ida-core, regional affiliates such as Al-Qa’ida in the Maghreb and Al-Shabaab have undergone similar patterns of strategic, tactical and propagandistic evolution. Nigeria’s Boko Haram is still focused on a local campaign, but recent operational refinement and ability to stage deadly ‘spectaculars’ suggests disturbing connections with other regional terror groups. Links between Al-Qa’ida-core and some jihadist groups in Africa have been established over the last decade which vary in strategic and operational significance. The focus of anti-jihadist counter-terrorism is shifting to Africa. Western intelligence and security services understand what is happening in Pakistan, in the Maghreb and in Yemen, even if they cannot do very much about it. But counter-terrorism officials privately acknowledge that they are unsighted and are working hard to try to understand how far the jihadist challenge may be migrating to Somalia, Kenya, north Nigeria and the borderlands of some of the vast territories of West Africa. www.interportpolice.orgTuesday, July 24, 2012
  12. 12. Emerging Threat to Homeland Security in the the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia Af rica The jihadist challenge constantly evolves. As yet, it is unclear whether the Al-Qa’ida-core is making a conscious effort to re-group and reconstitute itself in the Horn and across sub-Saharan Africa; or whether events represent displacement as Islamist groups fighting for a variety of different causes espouse a loose version of the global caliphate ideology and co-operate on an ad hoc basis. Either way, Africa represents a potential new front for counter-terrorism in Britain and the linkages already evident across the continent suggest the development of some disturbing new trends.the merger2 between Al-Qa’ida-core and Al- Shabaab – officially endorsed by Al-Qa’ida leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri in February 2012 – has been viewed as the final stage of a progressive alignment between the two groups that has been taking place over the last four years.Al-Qa’ida may now see the opportunity to do so in some of the most unstable African countries, by ‘playing local’ through its proxies. It is a strategy that the group is already testing in Yemen, where ‘Al-Qai’da in the Arabian Peninsula’ has recently undergone a ‘re-brand’ operation allegedly aimed to win over local tribes in the south of the country.4 Instead of violently coercing support from the local population, the group is trying to do so by providing vital public services and by appealing to the religious sense of those who would embrace a more hard-line application of Sharia law in the country. Far from merely being a goal in itself, Al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula views the establishment of a solid stronghold in Yemen as necessary to resume its broader terror campaign against the West. www.interportpolice.orgTuesday, July 24, 2012

  16. 16. InterPort Police Assistance Programs InterPort Police offers a wide portfolio of specialized training, assistance programs and services in the following areas: Bridge and Tunnels. Brides and Tunnels are a critical asset to the supply system within a country. Some port authorities have jurisdiction over these infrastructures or work closely with an adjacent jurisdiction as they are vital in moving people and cargo, thus they become a high target and require security protection Buses. Buses are part of the mass transit system, both public and private operations. Security has played a significant part of the everyday system since 9/11. Buses have been a source terrorism around the world. There has also is significant domestic and transnational drug trafficking within bus systems. Border Management. Borders are the front lines when it comes to protecting any country against terrorism, narcotics smuggling and economic instability. Proactive requirements strengthen the front lines ensuring a safe future tomorrow. The strengthening, expansion or reorganization of law enforcement specialties such as Border Police, Customs, and Immigration to support strong borders and ports of entries are increasingly in demand throughout the international community. Airports, seaports and many of our transport systems at the front line of the international boarders. Who has primary responsibility differs depending on the country. Today technology is playing an increasing role is assisting law enforcement manage border requirements. Cruise and Ferries. Passenger ferryboats and cruise ships have their own set of challenges when it comes to security. Security while in port or when underway at sea bring different situations. Ferries are often an essential part of mass transit while curse ships are an vacation option that can place two or three thousand passengers at risk at onetime.The InterPort Police - International Association of Airport and Seaport Police - holds consultative status with the IMO and sits on the security committee. Currently we are working on a facilities management report on Piracy relating to crime investigation and armed security guards. Airports. Large numbers of people pass through airports every day. This presents potential targets for terrorism and other forms of local and transnational crime. Similarly, the high concentration of people on large airliners, the potential high death rate with attacks on aircraft, and the ability to use a hijacked airplane as a lethal weapon may provide an alluring target for terrorism. Public Safety. The protection of the traveling public, the safety of the supply chain and the securing of critical infrastructure is the main stay of our jurisdictions responsibilities. Together as a Global Force our department member have the responsibility of protecting their nations and communities airports, seaports and transport systems. Working together the international link of cooperation and mutual programs makes a stronger security network. Transit. Any nation’s railroads, both passenger and freight, are important pieces of the transportation network. The London subway and Madrid rail bombings demonstrated the critical need for protecting trains from terrorist attack. Focuses greater information sharing, increased training and public awareness is essential. Seaports. The importance of the container shipping industry is equally matched by its vulnerabilities to terrorist attack. Port security and law enforcement is an essential mainstay in the protection of the the global supply chain. Rail.Freight rail are the backbone of transport for many countries. Freight trains are very efficient, with economy of scale and high energy efficiency. They too bring their own type of security problems as an essential part of the supply chain. Go to a seaport and many airports around the world you will find tracks leading up near the terminals. www.interportpolice.orgTuesday, July 24, 2012
  17. 17. InterPort Police 1PASS Program 1PASS Provide a highly secure, ground breaking passive biometric authentication & access system 1PASS is a biometric fusion technology based software system using high-resolution IP cameras to automatically authenticate identification of an individual in a natural flow.  The system offers user based permission, privilege and attribute protocols and interoperable access control that may be used with any credential or without any credential whatsoever. This highly secure, non-intrusive system provides immediate event alerts and comprehensive reporting. 1PASS is a state of the art personnel assurance program available to authorities, governments and departments who have jurisdiction over airport, seaport, transport, border and other critical infrastructure. Offered by the InterPort Police, the program incorporates biometric fusion technology to authenticate an individual from a combination of facial, speech, and behavioural recognition using computer software and cameras. No key, card or codes are required. These multiple biometric elements are integrated within the access control management system of the facility. 1PASS does not require any ID card, but can incorporate a credential into the protocol. In fact, one conforming credential is sufficient for any environment. The 1PASS symbol can be incorporated on to a credential to alert authorities that an individual is enrolled in the intelligent solution. This intelligent level of authentication allows for global interoperability but always requires local permissions for access. We call this - Global Access - Local Control. The 1PASS program offers a leveraged global interoperable identity and access assurance system. 1PA 1 2 Identification while in motion, regardless of height, walking or in a wheelchair Identity of one or more faces in the frame did not degrade performance SS 3 Recognize a face in spite of age and changes in age over an 8-year span of time 4 Recognition regardless of sex or race 5 Recognize a face in spite of changes in a person’s weight, change of hair colour, length or facial growth.
