In recent years, the shipping industry has undergone a digital revolution: internet connectivity on board has become common and ship’s systems are increasingly digitised and integrated. With this growing level of connection, comes greater risk. Ships are now a common target for hackers and it has become crucial that the entire crew has an understanding of how and when cyber attacks can occur.
Using detailed, step by step checklists, Cyber Security Workbook for On Board Ship Use provides a ship’s Security Officer with the practical skills to identify cyber risks and to protect vulnerable onboard systems. It also gives guidance on how best to detect, respond and recover in the event of a cyber attack.
This workbook will help to ensure that cyber risks are appropriately addressed in the onboard SMS (as required by IMO Resolution MSC.428(98)). It will also benefit shipowners, ship managers, ports and their IT departments.
