Cyber Risk – The Time is now!

Cyber Risk – The Time is now!

The most common way for cyber criminals to strike is through negligent or poorly trained individuals. In the past, many companies have been victims of cybercrime by relatively unsophisticated hacking methods, such as downloadable links in emails and viruses. In the maritime industry, the belief that “Our vessel is not connected to the cyberspace” is very much WRONG!

As of 2021, companies will be required to train their staff on Cyber Security under the ISM Code. To help organisations comply with this requirement, Seagull Maritime has cooperated with Gard and DNV GL to offer effective training on this incredibly important topic.

“Our goal is always focused on building highly competent staff-members – where daily tasks and routines can be completed far more safely and efficiently,” says Roger Ringstad, Seagull’s Managing Director and future CEO. “For these reasons and many more, we have set our sights on de-mystifying cyber issues.”

Based on an analysis of cases involving cyber security, Seagull’s twenty-minute video includes key recommendations for how the maritime industry can address these issues. Rather than suggesting large-scale industry changes, the module focuses on specific developments in the way people think, feel and behave.

There are two ways to train crewmembers on cyber security awareness and receive a #6209 Cyber Security Distance Course diploma:
