Over the past few years there has been a growing interest in the issues of cuber security and maritime security but far too little attention has been paid to the combination of the two security problems. And yet there are clear and critical points of intersection. The impact of (cuber) security issues on the maritime economy is emerging dramatically. However, as an ongoing research by one of the worlds leading thing tanks, Chatham House, has indicated, the shipping industry is still immature and struggles to come to grips with this new insidious threat. A structured method to understand the risks and vulnerabilities, but also to offer and applicable road map towards maintaining a sustainable security within the maritime industry is required.
In collaboration with The Dartmouth Centre for Seapower and Strategy (DCSS) our MSc International Shipping programme includes the opportunity to undertake specialist study focussing on Maritime Security. This programme enables graduates to enter the dynamic shipping and logistics industry with the skills to meet the contemporary needs of the market for securing continuous operations without the disturbance of malicious attacks.
