A well-trained crew can help detect warning signs and stop attempts well before they occur. This is why it is very important that the entire marine industry actively promotes awareness to their crews, shore employees, and service providers.
Staff training is key to ensuring and maintaining a good level of cyber-resilience. Companies should train and test their employees awareness regularly. Employees are potentially the weakest link, so a solid understanding of the consequences of a cyber-attack to their company’s reputation, at the very least, is critical.
It is not only important to train your own staff to secure your assets. If you want to operate in a secure environment then it is equally important to ensure that all your service providers and sub-suppliers, who have access to vessel systems and sensitive information, are equally aware of the threat of cyber-attacks.
