Cyber preparedness actions for a holistic approach and awareness raising in the MARitime logistics supply chain

Project description

Simulation tools to boost cyber awareness level of the maritime logistics value chain

Digital infrastructure is the key to operating and managing systems vital to the safety and security of shipping and ports. However, cyber risk management must be improved, and the importance of cyber preparedness cannot be overstated. The EU-funded Cyber-MAR project aims to exploit cyber range – an innovative hands-on cyber simulation training virtual environment used for cyberwarfare training and cyber technology research and development – in the maritime logistics value chain. It will develop a cost-efficient, novel simulation environment serving as both a knowledge-based platform and a decision support tool for cybersecurity measures. Data from incident response teams will be analysed and fed into the knowledge-based platform with newly-targeted scenarios and exercises.


Cyber-MAR is an effort to fully unlock the value of the use of cyber range in the maritime logistics value chain via the development of an innovative simulation environment adapting in the peculiarities of the maritime sector but being at the same time easily applicable in other transport subsectors. A combination of innovative technologies are the technology enablers of the proposed Cyber-MAR platform which is not only a knowledge-based platform but more importantly a decision support tool to cybersecurity measures, by deploying novel risk analysis and econometric models. CSIRTs/CERTs data collected will be analysed and feed the knowledge-based platform with new-targeted scenarios and exercises. Through Cyber-MAR, the maritime logistics value chain actors will increase their cyber-awareness level; they will validate their business continuity management minimizing business disruption potential. Cyber-MAR will act as a cost-efficient training solution covering the maritime logistics value chain.
