IMO for Spreading Cyber Security

Cyber security awareness on board ships plays an important role in ensuring the safety and security of shipping around the globe.

International Maritime Organization (IMO) has issued Guidelines on maritime cyber risk management, in addition to a resolution on Maritime Cyber Risk Management in Safety Management Systems – adopted by the Organization’s Maritime Safety Committee in June this year.

To help spread knowledge and use of these high-level recommendations – IMO has taken part in the “Sub Regional Workshop on Critical Infrastructure Protection: Cybersecurity and Border Protection” in Panama City, Panama September 13-15.
