The maritime sector is of crucial importance in modern society, since it is essential, both in economic and social development, and in the creation of employment opportunities and professional development.
Currently, the global maritime sector is increasingly dependent on digitalization, integration of operations and automation in processes. While the technology continues to advance, the IT and TO networks present in the vessels are beginning to be connected to each other and, frequently, also to the Internet. This brings with it a new and urgent objective: to maintain the safety of these critical systems.
Now, when we talk about security, we are not just talking about cybersecurity, we are talking mainly about environmental security. And it is precisely in environmental safety that the importance of the International Safety Management Code – IMS Code lies.
