Maritime Security

Our latest offering focuses on the floating complex information technology networks of the Maritime sector.

Our Experience

Over the last 11 years we have been delivering cyber capability to naval forces, including the European Union Naval Force and the British Navy. 

The slow but steady digitisation of the maritime industry has led to vessels relying on e-navigation, GPS, AIS and ECDIS. These are all technologies which are susceptible to cyber attack. We are now delighted to be able to extend our former 'defence force only' offering to the private sector.


Services

We look at all aspects of cyber security from the user aboard, right through to the destination of the network traffic and supply chain security.

All of our current Consultancy offerings are available for ships from Penetration Testing to Cyber Essentials to Security Operations Centres.

Secure by Design

The ideal time for cyber security to be considered is at the vessel design stage, or during refit. 

Wireless Security

We look at fine tuning the Wi-Fi signal so it’s reach is minimised but usable, whilst optimising the security of the Wi-Fi configuration. 

Network Connected Devices

We perform a network mapping exercise and vulnerability assessment to identify connections from control systems to navigation aids and their vulnerabilities.

Virtual Private Network

We can provide an encrypted tunnel between the vessel and our Isle of Man datacentre, utilising sophisticated monitoring equipment we will look for threats which may suggest compromise. 

Security Architecture

For more complex network topologies we will undertake a security architecture review and advise on the use of firewalls, Intrusion Prevention Systems, etc. 

Penetration Testing

Our consultants will attack your network boundaries as though they were a hacker using the same methods. Where permitted by the service provider we will ensure that your cloud provisioned services and social media platforms are configured securely.

Supply Chain Security

It is important to check that your suppliers also meet an appropriate level of cyber security, ensuring that they will not be used as the weak link to attack your vessel or compromise your sensitive information or intellectual property.
