Research and development in the field of maritime cybersecurity is of utmost importance as the industry faces an increasing number of cyber threats that put the safety and security of ships, ports, and the global supply chain at risk. In today’s digital age, the maritime industry relies heavily on technology and automation, which makes it a prime target for cyber-attacks. The significance of research and development in the field of maritime cybersecurity lies in its ability to identify, mitigate, and prevent these cyber threats.
The Centre for Maritime Cybersecurity proposes to foster research excellence in the following three research sub-topics:
- Situational awareness and global monitoring
- Cybersecurity dimensions of maritime technology
- Human aspects of maritime cybersecurity
