Cyber Security at Sea

The shipping industry has recently been alerted to the impact that cyber threats have had on businesses of all sizes around the world. These very real threats have come in the form of high-profile ransomware and other computer system breaches, that could severely affect the safety of any company's crew.

Ship's systems and operations are becoming increasingly networked, making them more vunerable to cyber breaches.
