The book fills a gap in the literature by discussing the intersection of the maritime transportation system and information security. The book is intended to inform maritime thought leaders who might have limited familiarity with the issues and vernacular of cybersecurity as well as the cybersecurity professional who might not be well-versed in the breadth and vernacular of the maritime industry.
The book's topics include an overview of the MTS, the generic cybersecurity threat landscape, maritime cyber risk management, cyberattacks on shipping lines and other assets within the MTS, port cybersecurity, threats against shipboard networks, spoofing and other cyber issues related to Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and the Automatic Identification System (AIS), cyberthreats against industrial control systems and autonomous vessels, and strategies and guidelines for maritime cyberdefense.
While the book discusses technical aspects, it is written at a high-level and linked by stories of actual events; it is particularly timely in a year that has experienced five successful ransomware attacks against maritime companies. To maintain currency, the book also has an accompanying Web site with up-to-date references and links to many of the maritime newsletters that cover cybersecurity in the industry -- including Digital Ship. The book is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions.
