Being the most critical interface in managing the supply chain between the local manufacturers and over sea consumer, port facilities around the world are constantly faced with various challenges in both commercial as well as in operational terms. For these challenges, port facilities need to ensure that they are fully prepared at all time in cases of unforeseen circumstances so the first, they can prevent it from occurring, second, they could allocate sufficient resources in response to such occurrences and third, in case of after event, the resources available could react in organized manner to prevent the situation from escalating to uncontrollable level. In security risk, the main variation from safety risk is the intent. Safety generally result from internal failure to ensure preventive measures are being observed to eliminate or isolate the hazards and the occurrences are generally unintentional, whereas in security, the introduction or reactivation of hazards are done with specific objective and it is generally an intentional or planned activities. With that in mind, a systematic risk assessment approach must be put in place to ensure all possible threats are identified and appropriate security barriers are effectively in place so that any attempt to cause undesired event could be detect and deter. This paper will be looking into various aspect that need to be taken into consideration in carryout the security risk assessment including the methodology use at the moment in carryout the risk assessment and follow-up management of the identified risks.
