The threat of a cyber attack is one of the most prominent business risks to any company’s information and operation systems. With the rapid digitalisation of the marine industry and increased use of integrated systems and software on ships and mobile offshore platforms, cyber security is becoming critical, not only for data protection, but also for reliable and safe marine operations.
All intelligent devices are potential targets for viruses, hacking and other malware attacks. Wärtsilä takes this threat very seriously. Our security approach in adopting cutting edge technology and industry best practices, is aimed at safeguarding all our products and service operations throughout their lifecycle, and developing the resilience required to defend against any form of cyber interference.
