Coast Guard Extends Comment Period for Cybersecurity NVIC

The Coast Guard has extended the comment period for the draft Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 05-17 entitled Guidelines for Addressing Cyber Risks at Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) Regulated Facilities.

The comment period was set to close on September 11, 2017, but has been extended to October 11, 2017, after the Coast Guard received extension requests due to conditions caused by hurricane Harvey.
