Hey! Do you work with IT in relation to ports? Let us have a couple of minutes of your time. The
world of the maritime transport sector is undergoing a rapid digital transformation. But as
dataflows grow in number, and devices, systems and global maritime networks start to
interconnect we also become more vulnerable to cyberattacks. Therefore, the InterReg South
Baltic Programme 2014-2020 decided to fund the SECMAR project. SECMAR (or Secure
Digitalisation for Sustainable Maritime Transport) deals with the emerging field of maritime
The aim of SECMAR is to increase the level of security and build up the competence
on cyber security in the South Baltic Sea area, in the ongoing digitalisation of the shipping and
logistics sector. One of the problem areas that the project has defined is a lack of basic knowledge
regarding cyber security in the maritime industry.
That is why SECMAR put together this cyber security self-assessment checklist for small and medium sized ports. To help guide IT-professionals in the maritime industry and enable them to safeguard their road to a more digitized industry. Safe at sea, safe IT. We hope you find it useful!
