Across the global maritime community, ports, vessels, ships and facilities are increasingly connected to cyber systems. So, what are the real, documented, current threats to the maritime industry from cyber-crimes? Many have confirmed that the cyber threats to vessels/cargo on the water from hackers. Every ship faces the risks of a hostile attack on ship’s systems which allows the vessel to be remotely controlled by pirates and hijack it to a port of their choice or causing a navigation error. Besides, the real threats could come from port systems/network/user PCs due to a lack of staff IT security training and a culture which staff using their own devices at work (Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD) and plugging them into PCs, port server/network/systems, ship systems, thereby possibly releasing a malware/phishing they may have been inadvertently carrying onto the port/vessel/ship.

Ever-increasing cyber threats for maritime industry have been proven to disrupt maritime business continuity. Failure to anticipate and prepare for a cyber incident may have significant consequences. Implement risk control processes and defenses, safe back-up & restore procedure as well as to detect and response to cyber incident become the key concern for every Managers/Heads/Chiefs of Information Security/Information Technology.
