Cyber Security in the Maritime Industry

Cyber security type approval

October 21, 2020

Duration: 1  day

Course Objective

Being protected against accidental or deliberate loss of information from an organization or its customers is a critical factor for any company's continuing success and survival.

When a company becomes the target of a cyber-attack, the main penetration technique first targets the organization's users. Due to insufficient understanding by the employees of security risks arising from (not only) internet browsing, this technique is particularly popular with the attackers, having positive results for them and a very negative impact for the targeted company.

This course addresses IMO Resolution MSC. 428 (98) and complies with TMSA 3 and OVMSA 2 element 7.3.3 and 13 KPI/best practice, promoting responsible behaviour by shore-based and vessel personnel towards:

  • Locking of unattended work stations
  • Safeguarding of passwords
  • No use of unauthorised software
  • Responsible use of social media
  • Control/prevention of misuse of portable storage and memory sticks
The course focuses on:
  • Relevance of cyber security to everyone working in the maritime sector
  • Regulations & standards
  • Types of attackers and threats (i.e. malware, viruses and spyware, use of removable media (USBs), risks of social networking
  • Motives of attackers and threats
  • Incidents already reported - Handling cyber-attacks
  • Need for a protective holistic approach
  • Fundamentals of cyber risk assessment
  • Fundamentals of detection & handling of cyber-attacks
  • Experience input from customer projects
