Navarino attended the Maritime Cyber Risk Management Summit which took place on June 20th in London. This one day event addressed cyber security management in the maritime industry from the operational, technical, training, insurance, regulatory and legal standpoints.
Topics covered included new and emerging maritime cyber security risks and regulation, maritime cyber security and loss prevention, reputational risk and business interruption and also examined how to embed maritime cyber security awareness onshore and at sea.
The event was also a good platform for us to present and discuss our GCHQ certified cyber security training course which is now available. Our course is designed to teach seafarers the potential cyber threats one can encounter online and aims to give them awareness of how to recognize and avoid falling victim to cyber attack, both for their personal devices and on business devices on board their vessels.
The course is available online and is offered through a voucher system, whereby shipping companies can buy a number of vouchers for each member of their organisation who they wish to educate about this important topic.
