The Coast Guard has published a new Facility Inspector – Cyber Job Aid, in order to provide the service’s marine safety personnel with additional guidance as they address facilities’ documented cyber vulnerabilities. This publication provides the Coast Guard workforce with the tools needed to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. This compliments the recently published Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) No. 01-20: Guidelines for Addressing Cyber Risks at MTSA Regulated Facilities on March 25, 2020 which provides guidance to facility owners and operators on complying with cybersecurity requirements to assess, document, and address computer system and network vulnerabilities.
