This SIG is newly established. If you are interested in greater involvement, please join the group and register your interest in becoming a member of the committee.
Against the backdrop of increasing technical complexity and automation of maritime assets, the IMarEST is launching a Special Interest Group (SIG) to identify and appraise new and emerging cyber risks; to develop preventative guidance to strengthen understanding and offer practical remedies; and to disseminate this information to marine engineers, scientists and technologists using the systems affected.
The Maritime Cyber Risk Management SIG objectives are planned to include, but are not limited to:
Establishing how to obtain trustworthy data on cyber threats
Establishing best practices based upon the IMO guidelines, BIMCO guidance and other (ISO 27001)
Providing input to regulatory work on Maritime Cyber Risk Management in IMO, in EU and in other international organisations
Improving organisation and training on board and ashore
Discussing Maritime Cyber Risk Management as a prerequisite for enabling operations of autonomous ships
If you like to get involved, please join the SIG as a corresponding member and join the SIG's group on Nexus.
