Maritime Cyber Security


Maritime Cyber Security starts with compliance with IMO MSC.428(98) and will have to be kept up as companies embrace digitization of workflow, remote surveys and inspection, and IoT-driven data analytics. Maritime digitization is not a matter of choice but of commercial survival. 

Our fully-managed Cyber Security Solution is not just about compliance but enabling our customers to run their vessels and business processes under the protection of the best cybersecurity tools and practices.

Approaches to cyber risk management will be company and ship specific but should be guided by the requirements of relevant national, international and flag state regulations and guidelines.

Process - Cyber Security


  • Identify the roles and responsibilities of users, key personnel, and management both ashore and on board
  • Identify the systems, assets, data, and capabilities that, if disrupted, could pose risks to the ship’s operations and safety implement technical and procedural measures to protect against a cyber incident, timely
  • Detection of incidents and ensure continuity of operations
  • A contingency plan which is regularly exercised
  • Some aspects of cyber risk management may include commercially sensitive or confidential information, for example the cyber risk assessment and its associated hardware and software inventories and network maps
  • Companies should, therefore, consider protecting this information appropriately, and as far as possible, not include sensitive information in their SMS.
