Beyond Compliance – Cyber Risk Management After IMO 2021


Cyber attacks are on the rise. Of nearly 200 maritime businesses surveyed earlier this year, almost half reported having been subject to a cyber breach since 2019.

Published as part of the Inmarsat Research Programme, Beyond Compliance examines the impact of the IMO 2021 cyber risk management code, explores the evolution of maritime cyber threats, and explains how shipowners can respond to these risks.
