This guide provides basic practical advice for Masters to reduce the risks associated with a cyber attack. It addresses human factors, physical security and IT best practice so that ships are more resilient to cyber attacks. The Guide is written in non-technical language to ensure it is accessible to those for whom English is not their first language. It is not UK specific and relevant to all nationalities of vessel, operator and crew.

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.
