Today, 14% of all cyber-attacks target the maritime industry, with over 50,000 ships at risk of being hacked. For shipping companies it is more important than ever to document their efforts to minimize cyber security threats.
As one of the main concerns in the maritime industry, cyber security will be formalized in Chapter IX of SOLAS as of January 1st 2021. IMO will add mandatory cyber security requirements to the ISM Code and each shipping company must incorporate cyber security into their Safety Management System. This should be done no later than the first annual verification of the company’s Document of Compliance following January 1st 2021.
Cyber security starts with people, their knowledge, behavior and mindsets. To help our customers minimizing the risk and preparing for the upcoming regulations, Seagull Maritime offers an immediate solution.
