In the last few years, the maritime industry has made great progress in improving its approach to cyber risk management, but significant gaps remain. This report explores the gaps that exist between the industry’s perceptions of cyber security and reality, taking into account the views of more than 200 stakeholders from across the industry, including cyber security experts, seafarers, shoreside managers, industry suppliers, and C-suite leaders.
The research has uncovered three great disconnects that exist across the industry where expectations and reality don’t match up, cyber risk management efforts are lacking, or risks that are unique to maritime exist. These industry disconnects exist not just internally within maritime organisations, but across the maritime supply chain, and in how the industry approaches investment and risk.
