the U.S. Coast Guard, and the Global MOTR Coordination Center, facilitated a Tabletop Exercise (TTX) that seeks to strengthen the capacity and capability of JMOC to counter the array of maritime challenges. We collaboratively explored best practices for exchanging information and potential actions by JMOC to build a networked approach
to identify. prevent, and respond. The TTX further explored information sharing considerations as well as response actions primarily through facilitated discussions surrounding scenarios. Substantive areas include the response to mines, sanctions enforcement, malicious cyber activities, and maritime domain awareness.

Through discussions and presentations, participants are encouraged to identify gaps
and potential solutions to more effectively counter information sharing and enforcement challenges.

The exercise was attended by over 30 participants from 15 agencies including the Georgian Coast Guard, Customs, Border police, Maritime Transportation Agency, and Ministry of Defense.
