ERA Chair in Maritime Cyber Security at Tallinn University of Technology

Project description

Coordinating Estonia's maritime cybersecurity capabilities

Shipping companies, ports and vessels are increasingly vulnerable to cyber attacks, which manifest in a number of ways. Estonia has one of the highest levels in IT innovation as well as the experience to tackle cybersecurity issues; moreover, its population is highly familiarised with digitalisation. The EU-funded MariCybERA project aims to coordinate Estonia's digital capabilities in a focussed and integrated way. The project is advanced by the Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech), which belongs to an Estonian ecosystem of cybersecurity and maritime institutions. The university will recruit a researcher and research coordinator for the position of ERA Chair holder, who will lead a new multidisciplinary Centre for Maritime Cybersecurity based at the University, and a research administrator manager.
