Maritime and Logistics, Business and Policy
Promoting excellent research into business and policy issues in maritime business and logistics.Further information
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.
Dartmouth Centre for Seapower and Strategy (DCSS)
The University of Plymouth's Dartmouth Centre for Seapower and Strategy (DCSS) was established to meet the clear and growing need to raise knowledge, awareness and understanding of strategic and defence issues as they relate to maritime affairs and the use of seapower in the 21st century.
Delivered by expert practitioner trainers alongside staff from the University of Plymouth our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses are designed to improve your knowledge of current security challenges, and enhance your skills to meet the demands of today's competitive security industry market.
