Cyber Risks in shipping: Industry is ignoring next month’s NIS Directive

The maritime industry is in danger of ignoring the implication of the European Unions Network and Information Systems Directive which will be active on May 10th.

The Directive forces European member states to strengthen the resilience of essential services, which in a directive list can include ports, termainals and shipping lines.

Talking at the Fathom World Smart Transformation  event in Hamburg last week Andrew Wadsworth from PA Consulting said he believes many people in the maritime secor are aware that the directive may have significant implications to their business operations, and failure to comply could result in a costly fine
