+ - Shipping Sector Security Awareness 'Non-Existent' -> 1

Submitted by

twoheadedboy writes "The European maritime sector has next to no idea about cyber security, according to a report released by the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA). The shipping industry, which carried 52 per cent of goods traffic in Europe in 2010, has "currently low to non-existent" awareness of cyber security needs and challenges, the report said. ENISA claimed the lack of understanding was evident at every layer of the industry, from government bodies to port authorities and maritime companies."

Shipping Sector Security Awareness 'Non-Existent'

  • What would happen if maritime pirates started exploiting this? I imagine that compromising some databases to gain access to shipping routes/logs/cargo/equipment/etc could go a long way in improving the odds of a successful ship seizure.
