MINIMIZING THE RISK FACED BY THE Defense INDUSTRy


From violent conflicts across Africa, to weapons reaching Iranian-backed Shiite militias fighting to keep Bashar al-Assad's Syrian regime in power, to Saudi bombing sorties in Yemen, the Western arms industry has been attracting increasing attention and scrutiny. Western-led attempts to stem the growing threat of armed non-state actors have often been misguided, as these actors may one day use the weaponry against the same states who armed them in the first place. The issue is no longer just to whom the weapons are being sold, but also how and against whom the weapons are being used.

Aside from the potential terrorist threat, there are major issues with illegal arms trafficking through illicit channels, facilitated by falsified end-user certificates, corrupt government officials, and transport companies using flags of convenience and mislabeling shipments to avoid detection by regulatory and monitoring bodies.

In order to minimize potential blowback, the weapons industry needs to keep abreast of the geopolitical environment and understand the cultural nuances and dynamics of the markets in which it is active or seeks to gain entry. It is important to conduct thorough risk assessments, sector landscaping, and buyer vetting to ensure there are no potential conflicts of interest or red flag issues that could harm the reputation of the manufacturer. In order to remain compliant and avoid public scrutiny, the weapons industry needs to have actionable intelligence to guide it into making informed decisions.
