Update on Draft NVIC 05-17 – Guidelines for Addressing Cyber Risks at MTSA Facilities

The comment period for the draft Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 05-17, Guidelines for Addressing Cyber Risks at Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) Regulated Facilities closed on October 11, 2017. 
Over the coming months, the Coast Guard will evaluate the more than 250 comments that were submitted to identify sections of the NVIC that would benefit from a more detailed explanation. Once the comments have been evaluated, and NVIC 05-17 is appropriately revised, the final NVIC will be posted to the Federal Register in 2018.
