Jones Walker LLP recently released the findings of our 2022 Ports and Terminals Cybersecurity Survey. Since 2018, we have surveyed key US infrastructure industries including the greater maritime industry in 2018 and the midstream oil and gas industry in 2020. The economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, geopolitical events, supply chain disruptions, labor shortages, rising inflation, and unstable energy prices make cybersecurity a growing concern for owners and operators of US ports and maritime terminals.
This year’s results reflect the responses of 125 c-suite executives, directors, security and compliance officers, and general counsel in the ports and terminals industry and confirm that cybersecurity remains a top concern for this sector.
The Jones Walker 2022 Ports and Terminals Cybersecurity Survey outlines four key findings and offers guidance on how the US ports and terminals industry can evaluate and improve cyber readiness.
