The development of technology brings obvious benefits, and at the same time, it also brings cyber risk into the shipping industry. In recent years, there are more and more frequent cyber security incidents in the shipping industry. The ship operation risks caused by the cyber security incidents will bring immeasurable losses to the shipowners.
