Cybersecurity has become an important issue in the maritime industry due to many reported cyberattack incidents that caused a lot of economy loss, personal or company information breach, and so on. However, there is limited research for maritime cybersecurity in the existing literature. This research aims to identify threats influencing cybersecurity in maritime operations and their control options through a state-of-the-art literature survey. A list of cyberattack incidents in various industries are presented. By restricting our attention to the maritime industry, this research identifies three maritime cyber threats, including the lack of training and experts, the use of outdated system, the risk of being hacker's target. To deal with the identified threats, a number of mitigation strategies are also proposed in this study, including developing cyber security process, providing cybersecurity training course, updating and upgrading programme regularly, and fostering cybersecurity climate.
