We have released our inaugural 2018 Maritime Cybersecurity Survey. Our survey polled 126 senior executives, chief information and technology officers, non-executive security and compliance leaders, and key managers from across the maritime industry in the United States to evaluate the state of cybersecurity in the industry.
The respondents represented key sectors in the maritime industry and included small, mid-sized, and large companies. A majority of the survey respondents report that the industry as a whole is prepared, while only a minority believe that their own company is ready for a cyber attack. The survey also found that nearly two in five companies experienced an attempted (28%) or successful (10%) data breach in the past year, and that only a minority of the respondents participate in government and industry initiatives designed to mitigate the risk of a cyber attack.
This year’s survey report also outlines what a prepared company looks like and offers guidance on how maritime companies can evaluate and improve cyber readiness.
