As on-ship and shore-based technologies develop, becoming more intricately connected, action to address the growth in maritime-cyber threat becomes essential.  Shipping infrastructure is critical to modern society, transporting 90% of the world’s essential goods.  Therefore, a balanced and realistic understanding of maritime cyber threat is essential to maintain business continuity.  The collaboration of industry, government and academia is key for creating effective and sustainable solutions in this rapidly developing and fast moving threat landscape.
