MRS 2024 will be Tuesday-Thursday, 11-13 June 2024 at Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) Monterey California


Maritime security is increasingly at risk during the current period of great-power competition and ongoing conflicts, especially in the Grey Zone. The maritime industry now finds itself at the center of attention for the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Merchant Marine, inter-agency coordination, state and local governments, and international stakeholders. 


Understanding each participant's priorities, challenges, capabilities, limitations, roles, and relationships is critical for reducing maritime risk, within the Maritime Global Commons, the littorals, and the seabed. Our shared goal: 


Building unity of purpose to achieve unity of effort.


The Maritime Risk Symposium is an annual three day conference in which government and maritime industry leaders, port representatives, researchers, and solution providers convene to examine current and emerging threats to maritime security. 

We are dedicated to bringing government agencies, commercial entities, institutions of research, and higher education together to meet and discuss various threats, challenges, and risks to international and domestic maritime sectors. Come join us to work on these serious challenges.
