Abstract:In the last decade, the cyber threat from state actors has been increasing. As a result, it has become necessary for armed forces to invest in cyber capabilities, such as cyber security. This can be seen in the cyber security requirements that are imposed on projects for the replacement and purchase of naval ships. The Thales Group, as a supplier of systems for naval ships, has to incorporate these requirements in their products. However, the Thales Naval Cyber Security vision, safeguarding your strength@sea, has a broader ambition than just delivering security by design. The ambition includes the goal to support navies in performing on-board cyber incident response in order to increase the mission sustainability. However, in current research is maritime cyber security in its infancy. Furthermore, current incident response processes and models do not take into account the circumstances that originate in a navy, both military and maritime. Therefore, in this research, the Cyber Incident Response Decision Model (CIRDM) is developed. CIRDM captures the necessary concepts that support the assessment and choosing of a response to a cyber incident on board a naval ship.
