IAPH issues cyber guidelines for ports and port facilities
The International Association of Ports and Harbours (IAPH) recently launched its Cybersecurity Guidelines for Ports and Port Facilities.
The document aims to assist ports and port facilities to establish the true financial, commercial and operational impact of a cyber-attack. It is also intended to help ports and port facilities make an objective assessment on their readiness to prevent, stop and recover from a cyber-attack.
The document is designed to create awareness among the C-level management of port authorities of the need to address the issue of cybersecurity and to offer a pragmatic and practical approach to dealing with cyber threat actors.
The guidelines have been submitted to the IMO Facilitation and Maritime Safety Committees for consideration and IAPH anticipates that these guidelines will become an active, living document with regular updates and editions going forward.
