Cyber security in the maritime industry
Today’s shift towards increasing interconnectedness at sea is continuing to enable significant efficiency gains and new capabilities for maritime operations. Running in parallel to this trend is an increase in vulnerability to cyber threats within the maritime industry.
In 2017 alone, successful cyber-attacks cost the maritime industry hundreds of millions of dollars. Preparing and implementing stringent cyber security standards is essential to reduce the effects and potential loss.
As a communication, IT and digital solutions provider, Marlink has proven they take their role in helping customers to defend against cyber-threats very seriously and are actively working to reduce risk in the maritime domain. While technology is important, education and understanding are key.
Marlink has commissioned a white paper to explain the challenges, the motivations and methods that cyber criminals use and the processes and technology that can be applied to stop them.
Ultimately, successful cyber security is a collaborative approach and Marlink is committed to helping you protect your vessels, your people and your business.
