Digitalization of the maritime industry has dramatically changed the efficiency of operations aboard vessels and at terminals and ports. Increased connectivity has given the industry access to vast amounts of data that continue to enhance vessel operation and safety. However, digitalization has also opened the risk for increased security concerns.

Below are industry resources and information related to cyber security for vessels, terminals, ports and vendors:

Human Element
Resources

In mid-summer, CSA and a number of companies representing a broad spectrum of the maritime community attended a Maritime Safety Conference hosted by Shell Trading US Company. Among the various issues discussed, an item titled “Cultural Sensitivity” received specific support from a number of participants, including CSA, and the group targeted the item as worthy of further review.

Following discussions during a few conference calls, participants provided/identified information sources and web sites for consideration by persons interested in cultural sensitivity and the impact on safety in the maritime industry. The list will naturally grow over time and viewers of this posting are encouraged to add to the list by sending information to CSA. The items considered valuable to the participants are included below:

Marine Environment Resources

Respecting and protecting the marine environment ensures a sustainable future for the shipping industry. A myriad of environmental regulations over the last 30 years have strengthened the industry’s commitment to protecting fragile ecosystems.

Maritime Industry Associations

As an economic engine for the global economy, the maritime industry is well represented by a number of trade associations, each with special focus on a sector or segment of the industry. Chamber of Shipping of America is proud to partner, collaborate, and count on maritime industry associations, such as those listed below, to support a strong future for the maritime industry.

 

Maritime Safety
Resources

Safe vessel operation is the number one priority of any responsible owner and operator. Safe operation includes not only the protection and safeguarding of cargo, but also of the seafarers and officers aboard a vessel. Compliance with applicable international and national marine safety regulations and guidelines helps to protect not only the seafarers, but also the marine environment and the shore side team.

Maritime Security
Resources

For centuries, acts of piracy have impacted the commercial maritime industry. While efforts to combat these illegal acts may change with time and methods, it is certain that anti-piracy actions are only successful through coordination of military and commercial resources and efforts. While responsive action once under attack is an important component of any anti-piracy effort, prevention or hardening of potential targets is equally if not more important to increase the likelihood that the attack does not occur at all.

The Chamber of Shipping of America would like to ensure that the industry (members and non-members) as a whole have access to timely information to enable vessels and their owners to take the necessary action to mitigate threats from piracy. Relevant documents and links are provided below to assure the widest distribution of critical information to the global maritime industry:
