Cyber risk management should be an inherent part of safety and security and should be considered at all levels of the company, including senior management ashore and onboard personnel.

This workbook provides practical guidance for ship (Part One - Onboard Practical Considerations) and shore (Part Two - Shore Management Considerations), including technical departments, IT departments and equipment manufacturers. It is aligned with IMO Resolution MSC.428(98) and will also be useful to the wider maritime industry.

The fifth edition has been produced and supported by BIMCO and International Chamber of Shipping (ICS).

It contains updated information on current threats and includes new topics such as the tools available to detect malware, process for hardening a computer, risks to Voyage Data Recorders (VDR), example of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) applied to NMEA messages, explanation of the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) tools, etc.

New detailed case studies illustrating cyber risks in a memorable fashion have been added. There are 14 checklists and 7 annexes, including risk assessment and how to create a cyber security plan.

Customs warning for customers located in the EU

If your company is located in the EU and buys a publication from Witherbys, there is a risk that a customs fee will be added to the cost of the publication. We have seen cases where the customs fee is almost the same as the price of the publication. To avoid this, you should consider acquiring BIMCO’s publications via one of the stockists working together with Witherbys. See a list of the stockists located within the EU.
