Riviera Media’s Martyn Wingrove discusses developments in the shipping sector to protect critical maritime infrastructure, including the newly announced specialist cybersecurity offering from Ince in collaboration with Mission Secure.
Wingrove underscores the sector's lack of protection and preparation compared to other industrial sectors, stating. "These separate developments come as the shipping industry is warned it is lagging behind other industrial sectors in deploying cyber security..."
“Cyber security is one of the industry’s greatest challenges. The threat level and sophistication of hackers increases every day with the result that many shipping companies do not fully appreciate the seriousness of the issue they face. The combination of the new IMO requirement together with the devastating impact a cyber attack can have on their operations creates yet another burden for those engaged in vessel operation.”
