“[The] evolution of digital access without security configurations and management as a priority also has increased risk of exposure to cyber vulnerabilities. Unauthorized access through the cyber domain should be treated the same as physical unauthorized access. and cyber threat actors and adversaries across a spectrum all should be treated the same–none of them belong on board.”
Moran Cyber will walk you through how to protect your vessel, crew, and guests, and brokerage business from cyber-attacks. Cyber risks such as unauthorized access and ransomware can create serious financial and environmental damage. We will demonstrate a simulated cyber attack on a yacht, explain the impacts, and discuss practical ways to protect and reduce risk.

MARITIME INDUSTRY REMAINS VULNERABLE TO CYBER ATTACKS
“While handling 90 percent of the global economy daily, maritime industry ashore and afloat remains increasingly vulnerable to cyber disruptions and attacks from ‘neerdowells and bad actors’ that threaten financial markets and the country’s national security…”
“The cybersecurity threat landscape is ever-changing. Attacks are becoming more sophisticated, advanced persistent threats from nation states are becoming more common and even blended with criminal activity. There are also untold unknowns. As the scope of threats seems to widen, we are discovering that a much wider spectrum of systems and assets are at risk.”
SHIPPING FIRMS FEND OFF GPS INTERFERENCE AS CYBER REGULATIONS APPROACH
“Starting in June of this year, at least 20 ships navigating through Russian waters on the Black Sea began reporting difficulties with their global positioning systems. Instead of seeing themselves traveling across the Black Sea, located south of Ukraine and north of Turkey, navigators looking at their GPS coordinates instead saw that their ship was located at an airport in the seaside town of Sochi, Russia.”
