Abstract: This book chapter highlights that the technological development and social acceptability of autonomous transport systems relies on the effective protection of IT systems that manage and control their safety- and security- functions. This is because the ripple effects of cyber breaches on board vessels go beyond the immediate financial loss and/or personal injuries and create a crisis of trust in new technologies that are currently developed. Unlike physical risks, cyber risks are borderless in nature and come with an inherent difficulty in identifying the perpetrator and the means of attack. Such characteristics have the potential to amplify social reactions in the aftermath of accidents and can arguably lead to the blacklisting of technologies that rely on them. As such, the paper argues that a change of liability paradigm might be required to manage cyber risks in the transport sector as the traditional system of streamlining risks via operators might come under pressure especially in cases of high-impact, orchestrated cyber attacks. In that respect, any future liability system regarding cyber risks shall not be decided in isolation but shall consider the autonomy of operations and its social acceptance.
