Defending the Cyber Sea: Legal Challenges Ahead

Abstract: 

New technologies are creating a massive concern for the shipping industry as cyberat-tacks on board ships and in ports continue to rise. More than 90% of world trade is carried by the shipping industry; and, as of 2018, there are more than 53,000 merchant ships sailing the cyber seas. At the same time, these systems are very vulnerable to cyberattacks. Through empirical research, this paper explores the global maritime cybersecurity legal landscape and advances recommendations for policy and legal frameworks essential to ensure safety and security on the cyber sea.
