Maritime Cyber Security is a topic of serious concern to the shipowning community. It affects almost all areas of ship operations and has significant implications for safety and business risk. This guide takes a bottom-up approach at a non-technical level in order to raise awareness and provide basic practical advice that is suitable for implementation on ships to reduce the risks associated with a cyber attack. It does not constitute or replace the need for a comprehensive approach to cyber security. It is intended to fit within a company’s cyber security organisation. Nothing in this document removes the need for suitable corporate oversight of cyber security nor does it replace any corporate policy.
