The criticality and fragility of Global Maritime Transportation System (GMTS) has been clearly demonstrated during the COVID-19 Pandemic. At the same fleets are aging and their technology is aging with them and thus more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. 38% of oil tankers and 59% of general cargo ships are more than twenty years old (Tam and Jones 2018).
In this presentation we will outline the risk for the Maritime Transportation System in relation to standard Cybersecurity (it is not so different). There are also some technologies and issues unique to the GMTS which we will discuss. We will address the cyber security preparedness of the GMTS.
Within the NHL Stenden University of applied sciences there is a unique combination of researchers and education in the maritime, cyber safety, cyber security, and serious gaming. We are discussing some results of our research based on this unique cross disciplinary combination:
- Development of database with maritime incidents and the impact of those incidents
- Development of Cyber Incidents Simulation and training
- Development of Maritime Honeynet to observe those attackers
