Special Issue Information
Background: Global supply chains rely heavily on maritime transportation. This sector is also responsible for providing food and, in the future, may also provide a key source of renewable energy.
Aim and scope: Given the importance and increased digitisation of systems at sea, this Special Issue is interested in maritime cyber threats, risks, and safety. We are seeking research on cyber threats in the context of maritime systems, from information technology to operational technology, the human element, autonomy, and infrastructure.
History: Maritime cybersecurity is a relatively new branch of both maritime and cybersecurity research.
Cutting-edge researches: We welcome cutting-edge research on how cyber-physical threats are understood, discovered, and assessed. New technical, social, and technical-social studies are ongoing to mitigate these issues, especially as systems become more complex and even automated.
What kind of paper we are looking for: We are looking for multi-disciplinary works that are relevant to this sector. Though it is often difficult to publish work in maritime-only or cybersecurity-only venues, there is a growing audience interested in this niche topic, and so this Special Issue intends to provide such an opportunity.
Global supply chains rely heavily on maritime transportation. This sector is also responsible for providing food and, in the future, may also present a key source of renewable energy. Given the importance and increased digitisation of systems at sea, this special branch of research is interested in maritime cyber threats, risks, and safety. This Special Issue is dedicated to research on cyber threats in the context of maritime systems, from information technology to operational technology, the human element, autonomy, and infrastructure. We aim to bring researchers together from academia, industry, and the government to present ongoing research on the maritime systems of today, as well as to discuss the threats they may face in the future. We are seeking multi-disciplinary works relevant to this sector.
