Shipping companies are increasingly using systems that rely on digitalisation, integration, and automation. As technology continues to develop, information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) onboard ships are being networked together – and more frequently connected to the internet. Logistic chains are now only rely on data driven systems and are fully dependent on the secure operations. So far the shipping managed to stay aside from a mass scale of cyber security related breaches, that has become common for land based industries, however few latest cases, such as Maersk case related to NotPetya ransomware/wiper in 2017, or rather recent Mediterranean Shipping Company, in April 2020 their data center operations were down for one day due to an unnamed malware strain. Those cases ring the bell for the whole industry to take actions to tackle the risks and ensure that the sufficient preventive measures are provided and effective.


The cybersecurity in maritime has been on the agenda for rather few years already. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) took initiative and upon substantial efforts finally in 2017 adopted resolution MSC.428(98) on Maritime Cyber Risk Management in Safety Management System (SMS). The Resolution called shipping to address the cyber risk management in the company management systems in a formal way. IMO, as well as other industry recognised organisations developed a number of publications to assist the shipping with best practices, guidelines and recommendations. To cope with the systematics and complexity, the shipping has to focus on the building knowledge and awareness, starting from top management, following to the shipboard operations, that are taken care by crew. We aim to contribute towards building the industry understanding and growing awareness on the matter.


In our workshop, we will address the following:

  • understanding of a relevance of the challenge for maritime industry
  • cybersecurity terminology for maritime
  • overall cybersecurity related regulatory framework, such as formal regulations and standards
  • types of typical threats and attackers
  • basics of cyber-attack detection
  • basics on handling of cyber-attack
  • proactive measures, prevention, risk management
