Increased number of cyber incidents in the maritime industry
Cybersecurity: a topic that is constantly evolving. Any business that wants to stay relevant today must go digital, this comes with security risks. Last year, for example, the number of cyber incidents in the maritime industry rose by a staggering 400%.
This increase is partly due to the Corona crisis, which has caused a large segment of personnel to work remotely, and to the interconnectivity between the IT and OT systems in maritime cyber environments. As a result, several international bodies, such as IMO and ENISA, introduced measures and guidelines to protect the future of technological advances within the maritime sector.
