Information Communication Technology (ICT) refers to several forms of information exchange between two or more devices like computers, mobile PDAs and hi-tech devices through which any of the several methods of interconnection, principally through the Internet can be initiated to perform a defined task. These technologies provide speedy, inexpensive, secure and convenient means of communication.
Therefore, in developing countries Nigeria precisely, the impact of ICT in the maritime sector for maritime operations and security cannot be over emphasised.
It is as a result of this that this research study is determined to assess the impact of ICT on security of Maritime operations.
The cross-sectional survey research design, which involves the use of questionnaires and interviews were adopted in this study. Using simple random sampling technique a total of sixty (60)respondents were drawn from Apapa and Tincan Island Ports, Lagos, Nigeria.
This design was chosen because it provides appropriate methodology for assessment of security and ICT in the Maritime sector of the nation’s economy.
