Description: Managing Cyber Risks and the Role of the P&I Club | an Overview - October 2020
Generally speaking, and in contrast to most other forms of marine insurance, the rules (or basic conditions of cover) of International Group P&I Clubs (IG) do not exclude claims arising from cyber incidents, unless such an incident were considered to be an act of war or terrorism. Accordingly, regular Group club P&I cover would be available for the consequences of a non-war or terrorism related cyber incident.

Crew training and awareness are crucial, as the most common way for cyber criminals to attack is through inadequately trained individuals. A 2018 survey revealed that 47% of the seafarers questioned stated they had sailed on a vessel that been a target of a cyber attack. Regrettably, only 15% of those seafarers acknowledged having received at least some cybersecurity training provided by their manning agent. Unfortunately, most of the cyber training was not specific either to the company or to the ship.
