Description: As maritime operations become more reliant on the systems integrated through automation, cyber risk is an area of increasing concern in the Marine Transportation System. This matter would eventually be monitored via PSC inspections for both domestic as well as foreign Flag vessels calling US ports.
In an effort to address cyber threats in the maritime sector, the US Coast Guard has issued a Guidance Paper to provide guidance to Coast Guard Marine Inspectors and Port State Control Officers for assessing cyber hygiene onboard applicable vessels, as well as compliance options if deficiencies are noted.
USCG recognizes that not all shipping companies and ships are alike, and therefore the SMS provides shipping companies the ability to tailor a structured system to address evolving cybersecurity vulnerabilities unique to a company/vessels specific management and operations.
If you arrive in the US port with a malfunctioning critical system, you will be required to fix it there and then, be audited, and be able to reassure the PSCO on your next visit that the issue has been rectified. If you cannot do this, your vessel will most probably be detained.
