Press release LISR:
We are pleased to announce to Ship-owners, Operators and Masters of Liberian flagged vessels the release of the new Cyber & Ship Security Computer Based Training (CBT) CD developed by the Liberian Registry.
This CD contains important familiarization and knowledge that seafarers and shoreside staff require when working with vessels – from new threats such ascyber-security, as well as best practices pertaining to piracy, armed robbery, stowaways and general ship security.
Using state-of-the-art computer based tools, the training CD offers a concise, multimedia-rich, interactive self-learning course. Whether on land or at sea, the Cyber & Ship Security training CD provides an effective tool to increase the competence, confidence and preparedness of your ship Masters and their crew.
The Cyber and Ship Security Computer-Based Training fulfills the requirements of STCW security awareness training (Part A Chapter VI A-VI/6) , and the Liberian Registry's Seafarer Certification and Documentation Department will accept completion for its security awareness special qualification.
This globally based training CD will replace the current Somalia based Anti-Piracy Best Management Practices (BMP) CBT.
In recent years, it has become apparent that maritime companies, ships, and ports are not adequately protected from security threats. IMO has issued a resolution giving shipowners and managers until 2021 to incorporate cyber-risk management into their ship safety plans. And the Liberian Registry has taken the typically proactive approach for which it has become renowned by launching a cyber and ship security computer based training program that provides a comprehensive overview of cyber-security issues, including concepts such as malware, network security, identity theft, risk management, and other common threats to maritime security.
The CBT program also provides a comprehensive overview of common maritime security threats, including anti-piracy, stowaways, the risk of criminal activity, threats to ship security, port-based drug-trafficking risks, security roles and responsibilities on board, and an introduction to the ISPS code.
The sea has always been a potentially hazardous and dangerous working environment. This state-of-the-art training will improve maritime safety and security knowledge and reduce risk to seafarers, vessels and companies.
Our computer based training is divided into 4 modules with ongoing evaluation through a series of questions. Once the seafarer scores over 80% on every module, a training certificate will be generated.
* Cyber-attacks have been identified as among the most serious emerging threats to the security of today's shipping industry. Over 40% of crew members report sailing on a vessel that has become infected with a virus or malware - and only 1 in 8 crewmembers have received cyber-security training. This module provides a comprehensive overview of the evolving field of cyber-security; including concepts such as different types of malware, network security, identity theft, and risk management.
* Roughly 2,000 stowaways are caught each year hiding on ships. This module provides a comprehensive overview of stowaways; including prevention, relevant regulations, specific risk assessments, ISPS requirements, and best management practices to prevent stowaways.
* Since 2009, there has been an average of 317 pirate attacks against ships worldwide each year. This module provides a comprehensive overview of anti-piracy measures; including detailed courses of action that are designed to assist shipmasters and their crews on preventing and suppressing acts of piracy and armed robbery against their ships.
GENERAL SECURITY TRAINING
* In recent years it has become apparent that no matter the size of the organization, maritime companies, ships, and ports are not adequately protected from security threats. This module provides a comprehensive overview of common maritime security threats; including risk of criminal activity, threats to ship security, port-based drug trafficking risks, security roles and responsibilities onboard, and an introduction to the ISPS code.
The training is recommended for all individuals, at all levels of seniority, who require enhanced training to deal with the threats faced by all companies, vessels, and crew. For more information please visit:http://www.liscr.com/CBT Additional Links:
