Safety at Sea launches the 2020 Maritime Cyber Security survey
The fifth annual Safety at Sea/ BIMCO Maritime Cyber Security survey, launched on 10 February, examines industry attitudes, measures cyber security spend and evaluates digital protection across the maritime sector.
The survey, created in partnership with BIMCO, acts as a barometer to gauge the level of cyber risk facing the maritime industry and the efforts companies are making to protect against cyber breaches year-on-year
The cyber threat to maritime is continuously evolving at a rate that outpaces the actions any single individual or organisation can take. Industry engagement and information sharing is a vital part of strengthening the maritime sector's defences against cyber-crime
Last year's survey results and whitepaper showed that companies are working to protect their IT systems, operational technology and against vulnerabilities introduced by third parties. However, companies still view their employees as their biggest cyber weakness.
Safety at Sea and BIMCO are committed to raising awareness for maritime cyber risk management. This year's survey will focus on the actions companies are taking to protect themselves and how 'cyber prepared' companies truly are.
Questions cover spend on cyber, staff training, what plans firms have to recover in the event of a cyber breach and how companies assess and protect IT systems and Operation Technology on board vessels. We'd like to hear from you to help us build a picture of the industry's approach to cyber risk.
The deadline for Maritime Cyber Security survey responses is 13 April 2020.
