Cyber security in the maritime industry is a major concern, due to a lack of security awareness or accountability while increasing use of new, sophisticated communications technologies raises the threat level to high.

With the potential for sensitive customer data leaks via ECDIS, AIS, RFID and GPS, it is important that security procedures and processes are in place so that operators know how to identify a potential security threat or have been trained to respond when a cyber attack is in process.

The perpetrators active in the maritime industry are mostly interested in financial gain, looking to gain access, stay hidden and extract financial profit from their targets.

However, accessing and extracting sensitive information or intellectual property can also help criminal or terrorist organizations whose motive is to use the industry to transport hazardous materials or weapons.

In an advanced threat, the attacker will spend a large amount of time researching a list of potential targets, gathering information about the organisation’s structure, clients etc.

Social media activity of the people in the target company will be monitored to extract information about the systems and forums favored by the user and any technology vulnerabilities assessed.

Once a weakness is found the next step the hacker will take is to breach the cyber security perimeter - the basic security most companies adopt - and gain access, which, for most attackers, is easily done.

Maritime Cyber Security

Advancement in broadband technologies and the move towards ‘Big Data’ and 'Ship Intelligence could leave the maritime industry vulnerable to cyber-crime unless it develops a better awareness of ICT (information, communication technology) security and adopts security best practice.

Certainly there is the possibility for AIS, GNSS, ENC and ECDIS charts to disappear from bridge screens or be modified, but the issue today is that most adversaries want to obtain data for financial gain.

Payment systems can be easily penetrated using targeted phishing scams to raise fake invoices or even to change shipping manifests in order to transport illicit goods, drugs and weapons.

The loss of sensitive data through breaches in system security is the single most important challenge that faces the maritime industry today.
Risk Assessment:  Cyber Security starts from identifying all possible threats and vulnerabilities. Related processes include penetration testing, vulnerability assessment and audit.

Risk Management: Securing your organization’s IT infrastructure and deploying security policies are vital steps for managing cyber security risks.

Post-attack Crisis Management: Managing a post-attack crisis can be very challenging, requiring investigation, forensics and reputation management.

Cyber Security Event Management: We can monitor your entire network 24/7 for preventing and addressing attacks, keeping your organization safe.
