International Maritime Bureau: protect yourself!

According to the IMB, shipping is still far too lax in combating cybercrime, while the sector can easily be the victim of hackers. Since it became known last year that hackers have been able to control the port of Antwerp for a long time, according to the IMB, little has happened by the shipping sector to prevent cybercrime. The IMB, therefore, calls on shipping to protect itself against hackers.

Proven effective

SAM runs on ships to monitor all traffic between the vessel and the shore for malicious behaviour. The last thing you want is for the systems on the boat to become infected with ransomware. With the SAM-1 a small robust solution is available that can be placed in any ship and offers direct security.

From the news:

"Research by 350 industry executives shows: The transport industry expects that cyber crime and data breaches will pose a major risk in the coming ten years."

"Maritime companies are attractive to cyber criminals. They are often easier to hack than financial or government institutions. For example, a cyber attack blocked the computer system of the APM Terminals in Rotterdam and parent company A.P. Møller-Maersk at the end of June 2017, causing container handling to stop."
