(www.MaritimeCyprus.com) As the data revolution continues to open up new possibilities for the maritime industry, cybercriminals are increasingly looking for new opportunities to uncover network vulnerabilities. Online criminals don’t discriminate as they forage to find a vulnerability to penetrate your IT network and exploit you, your crew, and your vessel. With the average cyber breach costing £2.4m (Cranfield University 2019), the damage can be disastrous; compromised operations, loss of sensitive information, costly delays, rising insurance premiums, and unhappy clients, which can send your fleet’s reputation spiraling out of control. Recognised by the IMO 2021 cyber regulations, the industry must tighten its practices.
Inmarsat has been pushing boundaries, in our relentless of progress to connect the world’s oceans. With Fleet Secure we lead by example, working with the best intelligence teams to develop the world’s first cybersecurity solution specifically designed for the maritime industry. Protect your vessel’s network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and allow your crew to focus on the tasks to reach your destination with complete peace of mind.
Fleet Secure combines three powerful components – Fleet Secure Endpoint, Fleet Secure Unified Threat Management, and Cyber Awareness Training, all aimed at proactively responding to a potential threat.
Fleet Secure Endpoint
With Fleet Secure Endpoint (FSE) we’re pioneering more than just an off-the-shelf IT anti-virus solution. We’re offering continuous protection of all online endpoints on your vessel’s network with web content filtering and blocking malicious traffic whether incoming or outgoing. Defend every single potential vulnerability across the vast network of your vessel from threat regardless of origin. Whether from a computer, crew laptop, USB or onboard sensor, FSE will automatically monitor, identify and block any trace of infection.
FSE includes a Security report feature that gives you a clear overview of the security status of the vessel in a fully International Maritime Organization (IMO) 2021-compliant format. The report can also be printed and produced during port inspections to highlight to authorities steps taken to protect the vessel and its assets.
FSE also provides a Risk Assessment report, and an Organisational Security Management Overview (OSMO) report, to further support IMO 2021 compliance.
