Be Cyber Aware at Sea focused on the importance of knowing what lies inside a USB device, highlighting that although it may seem small, there’s a high possibility of hiding major dangers that could easily affect a vessel’s operation.
The video is presenting the threats when installing a USB device in a computer system.
In the possibility that the device carries viruses, when installed in a computer it could affect the whole system of the vessel, from the technological installations, to the vessel’s propellers.
Therefore, Be Cyber Aware at Sea proposes that one should stop and think before installing a USB device.
Prior to opening the device’s data when in a computer, one should firstly run a virus check to be sure that there’s no danger lying behind.
Be Cyber Aware at Sea recommends:
Avoid the use of USB sticks unless absolutely necessary and only use them where they have been firstly checked for a virus.
