Cyberattacks occur on a daily basis. A major cybersecurity incident occurred at the Port of Rotterdam on 2 November 2016. Fortunately, it was a drill designed to train managers how to respond when a cyberattack cripples critical computer systems.
USCG together with the National Institute of Standards and Technology and maritime industry stakeholders, has developed a voluntary cybersecurity “Profile” for Maritime Bulk Liquid Transfer (MBLT) facilities.
Capt M.Segar, MPA Singapore, referred to the current maritime cyber security threats and actions taken by MPA to create further awareness. He stressed that innovations and technology development in the industry have led to security gaps in the maritime cyberspace thus cyber security is now more important than ever.
North P&I Club is continuing its drive to highlight the range of cyber threats facing shipowners through active support of the new international ‘Be Cyber Aware At Sea’ campaign. The campaign is a global maritime and offshore industry initiative to raise awareness of the increasing maritime cyber threats to international shipping, ports and offshore operations.
There is one key factor that is crucial for all smart shipping: connectivity. Mr Frank J. Coles, Transas CEO, notes how connectivity has improved seafarers’ life and what is left to be done.
SAFETY4SEA seeks to assess how maritime stakeholders realize the current and future smart shipping challenges and establish the nature of ECDIS & e-Navigation, Cyber Safety/ Cyber Security, Autonomous Shipping and Future Trends within shipping.
Drones, remote inspection technologies and insights on cybersecurity were some of the main topics discussed at the DNV GL Innovation Day in Singapore. Aimed at providing insights into the latest value creating digital solutions, the Innovation Day included ten presentations and drew upon DNV GL’s expertise in the maritime, software, energy and oil & gas sectors.
USCG gives his advice on why cyber security matters. To achieve the protection and resilience needed for critical control system networks, security needs to mature from a piecemeal collection of technologies to effective cyber security governance. This includes the ability to detect abnormal behavior and prevent attacks while providing meaningful forensics to investigate breaches when they occur.
USCG gives his advice on what it is required for building cyber resiliency. Cyber security resiliency is the ability for an organization to identify, prevent, detect and respond to a process or technology failure, minimizing harm, reputational damage, and financial loss.
Transas is calling for IMO to set standards of compliance for the communication connections between ship and shore or else create a significant cyber security risk.
