Jordan Wylie, Communications Officer, Be Cyber Aware at Sea Campaign recently mentioned how useful is the support that the Campaign receives from Inmarsat which is helping them actively engage with both the global maritime and offshore sectors on a much wider scale.
Jordan Wylie, Communications Officer, Be Cyber Aware at Sea Campaign, gave a presentation at the 2017 SMART4SEA Conference & Awards, where he highlighted the importance of the human factor in managing the cyber risk at sea. With most cyber and information security breaches on board being a direct result of human error, Mr. Wylie noted that awareness and training should be the starting point for all ship owners.
Jordan Wylie, Communications Officer, Be Cyber Aware at Sea Campaign, argues that it is time for shipping companies to prioritise cyber security in their risk registers and assign accountability for managing this risk . Cyber-attack is no longer a matter of “if” but “when” and concerns whole organization; both the senior leadership team, shore side staff and onboard crew members. ‘Be Cyber Aware at Sea Campaign’ aims to assist in raising awareness of the cyber risks and threats to international shipping.
