Welcome to “Phish & Ships”, the maritime cyber security newsletter, keeping you up to date with the shipping and offshore industry initiative, “Be Cyber Aware At Sea”.
Issue 21 is once again generously sponsored by TDG Cyber Marine, an expert player in the cybersecurity industry. The company offers leading edge and patented technologies to provide a more robust defence against the escalating threat from cybercriminal activity.
This month we assess the effects of another major shipping company having fallen foul of a ransomware attack. This time it is the Chinese container giant COSCO which has been left struggling to deal with the aftermath of an attack which began on offices ashore.
We also hear from experts on their views of some of the biggest cyber security issues today. Thank you to Gideon Lenky of EPSCO-Ra for once more sharing his expertise. Phish and Ships would be nothing without the support of industry, and experts who are willing to explain complex cyber matters in a way which we can all understand.
Over the past issues, we have heard from an incredible array of experts, including Sharif Gardner, Mark Sutcliffe, James Creasy, Edwin Lampert, Tim Parker, Stuart Quick, Akash Bharadia, Ian Millen, Siraj Ahmed Shaikh, Jaqueline Spencer-Sim, Lawrie Abercromby, Chris Lowe, Michael Shen, and even the “people hacker” Jenny Radcliffe. Thank you to all of them for taking the time, and also to you for reading. Cyber awareness at sea is taking hold, and we are very proud to play our part.
