Cyber Security on board ships

11 july 2017

Cyber security on board ships is becoming a topic of the utmost importance

With IT systems and computer networks being linked to navigation systems, computers used by the crew, cargo loading management systems, propulsion plants, to cite a few, we see the emergence of news risks, too often underestimated by shipping companies. These risks may involve data theft, remote takeover of computer systems, etc.

More information may be founded in the "Cyber Security Guidelines for Ships" published by BIMCO. We strongly advise companies to give this issue careful consideration.
