Description: Across the global maritime community, vessels, ports, and facilities are already highly dependent on cyber systems. The Internet of things, the blockchain technology, electronic certificates, 3-D spare parts printing and many more innovations could change the face of the global shipping industry, enabling smart operations, e-navigation and even automated and unmanned ships.
However, these developments come with a cost. The increased digitalization may prove to be beneficial to the industry in terms of productivity, efficiency and performance optimization but also, impose serious threats from the consistent connection of a ship with the cyber world. This is due to the ever-growing number of illegitimate parties that stand to gain from manipulation stolen data of the industry’s on-board and onshore systems.
The potential impact of such malicious action can have significant consequences for personnel on board and on shore, as well as, on the environment.
Systems onboard vessels are separated into two main categories, each of them with its own vulnerabilities and potential consequences, that defines the approach they need to confrontation and tolerance of the cyber risk.
By analysing the systems in more detail, this thesis identifies the imposed threats that render the ship vulnerable to cyber threats. A detailed framework for mitigating cyber risk is proposed and a simulation of an attack is created in order to evaluate the ease of access and the response performance in such a scenario.
