The Development of a Cyber Safety Culture
MetadataShow full item record
A rise in catastrophic events as a result of poor safety management (e.g. the capsizing of the Herald of Free Enterprise and Costa Concordia), has driven the maritime sector to seek improvements in its safety management. This paper will explore the vital role of the human element within safety management, and why, as part of that safety management companies must foster a safety culture. The development of safety cultures is not new to the maritime sector. However, the increase in connected systems within the sector (e.g. satellite communications etc.) means these safety cultures must now consider the risks posed by digital systems. Therefore, the paper will consider what the core elements of a cyber safety culture are, and how a company can nurture its development. The paper will then conclude by discussing the various benefits of developing a robust cyber safety culture, including demonstrable compliance to the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) cyber regulations, Resolution MSC.428(98).
