The Kenya Ports Authority says it has upgraded its security system, making the Mombasa port one of the most secure in Africa.
The Integrated Security System has raised safety standards at the port to international levels.
KPA managing director Gichiri Ndua said the port continues to make substantial progress following the development launched five years ago.
"We constantly update our information communication technology systems," he said during a workshop at Jacaranda Indian Ocean Beach Resort last week.
Capt Ali A Abdille, principal port security officer (Enforcement), said major security threats include terrorist acts against shipping, offshore installations and other maritime interests.
Others are piracy and armed robbery at sea, transnational organised crimes like smuggling of migrants, narcotics, arms and cargo theft.
