How to Implement U.S. Coast Guard Cybersecurity Requirements
Given that maritime facilities operate directly in the middle of the supply chain, a persistent cyber attack could result in significant financial losses—not only to the facility itself but to its upstream and downstream customers. Implementing a solid cybersecurity program is critical to demonstrating proper due diligence.
Cyber risk management varies greatly from facility to facility based on the size and complexity of each facility's cyber systems.
The U.S. Coast Guard makes clear that facilities need to conduct effective cybersecurity assessments. A properly performed cybersecurity assessment is a powerful tool to reduce service disruption and threats to employee safety and security that just makes good business sense.
