Maritime Cyber Security
The risk to ships from cyber-attacks is continuously increasing due to the growing usage of technology that features digitisation, automation, and system integration.
Terrorists, criminals, states, and opportunists all pose a threat to ships through unauthorised access or malicious attacks to systems and networks.
The types of cyber-attack include disruptions of operations, destruction of data, commercial espionage, criminal intelligence gathering, and ransoming operability.
Cyber-attacks on the maritime industry have increased by 900% over the last three years.Naval Dome
OUR CYBER SECURITY SOLUTIONS
Protecting Your Vessel
We address risks ashore and on-board to provide you with cyber security solutions. Our activity covers the assessment and protection of all relevant systems, assets, operations, and data, including the ship-to-shore interface. We focus on protecting your IT, OT, information, and data to ensure the safety of your ship, personnel, cargo, and company.
Protection & privacy of personal data
Our services protect the owners, staff and guests data from unauthorised access along with secure deletion of private data if necessary.
Employee & Personnel Screening
As confidential and private data will be accessed and available to individuals in your employment, it is vital to know the individual is not susceptible to cohesion or bribery. Our screening provides confidence is trustworthiness.
Protect your vessel from the growing threat of drones.
Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessments
Penetration tests vary from an initial assessment of existing security mechanisms to full vulnerability scanning of your entire system.
Electronic counter measures
Using state of the art equipment we carry out searches for conventional and non-conventional eavesdropping devices including those using digital and modern gsm-based devices.
Crew tend to be creatures of habit, meet in the same places, with the same people. Are they aware of the risks this may pose to them, the vessel and the owner? Our Cyber Awareness training is key in helping protect against a cyber attack.
As part of our preparation for the possibility of a cyber-attack, we identify systems, assets, operations, and data that could be at risk. This activity leads to the development of contingency plans and the implementation of risk-control measures covering on-shore and on-board.
We enhance our ability to predict how you may be the target of a cyber-attack using our extensive experience and a close assessment of your operations. We also use knowledge of attacks from the past, for example when shipping giant Maersk was hit by ransomware that ended up costing them more than £200 million.
Our activity includes a variety of measures to protect your resilience and security. We cover all systems within your shipping operations and services that could be threatened by a cyber-attack. We also anticipate the growing threat of cyber-attack and espionage conducted using drones.
