Naval War College Review


Alberto A. Soto


Information sharing is a fundamental requirement for meeting most of the current challenges of international maritime security. During the gather- ing of naval and maritime authorities at the nineteenth International Sea Power Symposium, held during October 2009 at the U.S. Naval War College, this topic captured the attention of most of the international representatives. It has become obvious that, together with globalization, the multiple threats and challenges of the maritime environment have assumed a transnational nature and require a coordinated effort to address them.
