Shipping is global. Cyber threats are global. Thus taking care of cybersecurity in the maritime sector should not be left to each individual country nor separated by function. Cross-border cooperation is essential to greater security for the world’s ships.
Andreas Nordseth, Director of the Danish Maritime Authority:
“The increasing digitalization poses significant new security challenges. Cyber threats know no bounds making it vital that we cooperate on maritime cybersecurity to ensure shipping both at sea and in port.”
