Call For Papers

Critical infrastructure in the maritime sector sustains essential services and the movement of vital goods. Maritime activities are so crucial that their unavailability or delays in their supply chain may adversely affect the well-being of a country. Critical infrastructures are vital assets for public safety, economic welfare, and national security. Vulnerabilities of critical infrastructures have increased with the widespread use of information technologies. As Critical National Infrastructures are becoming more vulnerable to cyberattacks, their protection becomes a significant issue for any organization as well as for any nation. The risks to continued operations from failing to upgrade aging infrastructure or not meeting mandated regulatory regimes are considered higher given the demonstrable impact of such circumstances.

Due to the rapid increase of sophisticated cyber threats targeting the maritime sector with significant destructive effects, the cyber security of critical infrastructures has become an agenda item for academics, practitioners, and policymakers. A holistic view that covers technical, policy, human, and behavioral aspects is essential to handle the cyber security of critical infrastructures effectively. Moreover, the ability to attribute crimes to criminals is a vital element of avoiding impunity in cyberspace.

In this workshop, both research and practical aspects of cyber security considerations in critical infrastructures in the maritime sector are of interest. Aligned with the interdisciplinary nature of cyber security, authors from academia, government, and industry are welcome to contribute.

Topics of Interest

We seek original and high-quality submissions on one or more of the following topics:
- Cyber security of complex and distributed critical infrastructures;
- Situational Awareness towards Maritime Cyber Incidents;
- Prevention, resilience, and preparedness;
- Maritime security management methodologies (MSMM);
- Safety-security interactions;
- Protection of Ports’ Information and Telecommunication (PIT) systems
- Maritime security policies, standards, and regulations;
- Vulnerability and risk assessment methodologies for distributed systems;
