The Maritime Executive | Securing Vessels at Sea: Frontline Insights on Maritime Cybersecurity

February 22, 2021


Following a string of cyber-attacks affecting leading maritime companies like MaerskCMA CGM and Cosco, cyber threats have become a top priority for maritime regulators. The Maritime Executive and Mission Secure discuss maritime cyber security, managing cyber risks on vessels and at shore, and complying with the IMO Resolution MSC.428(98).

Mission Secure's Don Ward, Senior Vice President of Global Services, and Weston Hecker, Senior Ethical Hacker, Researcher, and Penetration Tester, share an inside view of what they see on the front lines as they help the industry manage cyber risks in day-to-day operations.

“I tell all of our customers that we try to protect against four types of threats: you from the outside, you from you, you from your third parties on the ship, and the third parties from each other.”
