Course Summary

This course provides captains and crews with the fundamental concepts and techniques necessary
to successfully prepare for and respond to cyber threats in the maritime domain. Software,
hardware, and people are all possible attack vectors onboard vessels, and a foundational
understanding of how to address them is essential to maintaining security and privacy of owners,
guests, and crew members. Students will develop comprehension and perspective on the cyber
threats prevalent in the maritime industry and society writ large. We will explore impact of cyber
incidents and how to mitigate potential threats with sound preventative measures and
cybersecurity resources. Special consideration will be given to distinguishing sensitive information
and critical systems to ensure captains and crews can apply appropriate protections in accordance
with global privacy and data regulations. At the end of the course students will be able to (1)
identify sensitive information and critical systems and ensure security and privacy are maintained,
(2) comprehend cyber threats and possible incidents, (3) develop sound strategies for
implementing preventative cybersecurity measures, and (4) maintain a vessel security policy.
