A landmark example of the threat posed to the shipping sector was seen in the impact caused by the ‘NotPetya’ ransomware that hit the global news and caused a significant outage to shipping giant Maersk in 2017.

The shipping sector has traditionally stood apart from the developments in cybersecurity over the past decade. With the majority of critical functions and assets physically isolated by miles of ocean, the need to secure these resources against cyber threats has seemed similarly remote.
