The threat posed by cyber risks is growing, due to the increasing digitization and networking of shipping. Perpetrators are becoming increasingly professional, and the damage done can cost millions. The new IMO guidelines on cyber security have been in force since 2021 to counter this. Shipping companies need to ensure that cyber risks are taken into consideration in safe management, as otherwise the Port State Control can order the impounding of the vessel.
This is reason enough to ensure greater cyber security on board. Waterway IT can provide you with a package of solutions for this purpose, each of which has a proven record of success.
We can provide you with support when it comes to securing your shipboard IT and training your crew. Our many years of experience in shipping mean that we are familiar with the technical conditions on board and those processes that facilitate cyber risks. And, accordingly, we also know what to do to guarantee the security of systems.
Our cyber security experts will advise you and provide you with comprehensive solutions. We configure hardware and software, train the crew and regularly inspect your security precautions.
We can also assist you during updating of your SMS manual to ensure that you meet IMO 2021 regulations. After all, we want you to do really well in the next audit! Our support means you need not fear any sanctions from the Port State Control.
Phishing Attack Security Check
Ironically, the crew on board and personnel on land unwittingly pose among the greatest threats to cyber security. Criminal hackers frequently employ phishing emails to plant malware in the IT system. Viruses and similar can spread if a fraudulent email is carelessly or unknowingly opened
Which is why Waterway IT provides you with a special test procedure that simulates phishing attacks. Results achieved in this test are used for targeted training of the crew in the identification of phishing emails and rapid reacting to attacks.
A single fraudulent email casually opened can, under certain circumstances, result in millions in damage. You can prevent this with our Phishing Attack Security Check – at an exceptionally attractive price.
