Maritime Cybersecurity - Minor

The Maritime Cybersecurity Minor is designed to develop the knowledge and skills of students interested in maritime careers. This encompasses protecting both information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) systems while also safeguarding data in the maritime environment. The world economy, security, and global well-being rely on maritime commerce to transport and distribute goods, services, and personnel either overseas or through inland waterways. These components collectively comprise the maritime transportation systems which are increasingly targeted by cyberattacks with potentially disastrous results both nationally and internationally. Courses will be focused on developing foundational knowledge and skills.
