Industry Risk Overview

Maritime shipping, which carries close to 90% of global trade, accounts for  2-3% of global greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) annually. So addressing this challenge will be key for the shipping industry.

Extreme weather events, including hurricanes, continue to be a particular threat to the industry and are increasingly likely due to climate change. The widespread use of operational technology, combined with advances in technology that predict the first fully autonomous vessels will be in commercial operation by 2025,  brings with it potential cyber risks such as systems breaches and an increase in financially motivated ransomware that targets systems and physical assets.
