Is your vessel cyber secure?
Cybercrime is an inevitable downside of a digital economy, so putting practical mitigation strategies in place has to be a priority for every fleet operator and ship manager, both shore-side and at sea.
The potential risks of a cyberattack on a vessel include:
- Interruption of operations – a virus affecting onboard systems can cause costly delays in getting to port
- Loss of business-sensitive information and resulting risk of blackmail
- Insurance cover – impact on premiums due to lack of cyber security measures
- Loss of reputation – corporate image can be tarnished if a company is seen as being vulnerable to hackers
- Privacy impact – new regulations such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), will see companies fined for failing to secure employee information
