Cybersecurity in Maritime
Maritime industry is now more digital than ever. But are systems prepared, and are companies ready to tackle an onslaught of emerging threats?
With more devices, processes and systems now available online, each holding a wealth of data used for automation, tracking, monitoring, scheduling and controlling, the maritime sector is open to many new vulnerabilities.
Network and Data Breach
Via remote infiltration, bad actors are able to control physical elements that can affect critical infrastructure and manipulate outcomes. As well as acquire valuable intelligence on intellectual property, trade agreements and personal data.
Ransomware attacks on maritime have risen on a global scale. High ransom demands, time spent on remediating threats, safeguarding data and time lost on navigating the threat landscape puts organisations at a tremendous financial loss.
Web Application Attacks
Attacks breach company payment applications, and instal malicious malware or code, to steal personal information, data, logs, procedures, tasks and bank details. Companies without adequate security procedures in place, are the most susceptible.
Effective security always comes down to three key elements. Processes, people and technology.
Processes must run seamlessly alongside the organisation. Security experts must have the capability to detect, react and understand the context of a risk. And the technology must be superior, to keep up with cyber threats. All elements are equally as important, and you must have all three to ensure security.
