Course Objective

With the advancement of technologies, information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) onboard ships are increasingly being networked due to vessel digitization and often frequently connected to a private or public network.

This brings greater risk of unauthorized access or malicious attacks to ships’ systems, networks and even the safety of personnel on shipboard. As such, it is important for all Maritime personnel to be aware of the importance of cyber security, understand the impact and know what the best practices are in cyber security on shipboard.

The objective of the course is to create awareness and understanding of the cyber security threats and challenges faced by the Maritime Industry. Mitigation of risks and countermeasures will also be discussed in the course
