Summary/Abstract: A ship's various intelligent subsystems ensure smooth operation: from tank and ballast water management to propulsion control, alarm, and monitoring systems. All of them work using industrial automation technology. As network communication increases in the maritime industry, the exchange of sensitive data also increases. Electronic systems such as navigation, monitoring, and collision warning systems require connections with off-ship, thus creating potential targets for cybercrime. With the increasing digitalization and network connections on ships, the risk of data misuse and cybercrime is also increasing. Anyone considering the possibilities of Maritime 4.0 also needs to consider the growing requirements for cybersecurity and, more importantly, find suitable solutions to implement it.
