Big ship – big data
In recent years, the hacker attacks have become more and more sophisticated, as cyber security companies and cyber criminals race to one-up each other. We have seen a huge increase in malicious code, that encrypts data to hold it hostage – and the only way for the rightful owners to regain access to the data is by paying for the decryption key.
There is no such thing as 100% secure data, and companies around the globe are struggling to keep their data safe. The shipping industry is no exception to this. One of the most valuable assets in this ongoing battle is spreading awareness, and we predict that cyber security awareness training will soon be seen as a mandatory for most people in our industry.
Top-of-the-line anti-virus software, advanced machine learning, and daily surveillance, are all tools we use to create solutions that recognize and stop possible threats before you even know about them. This is achieved with the help of pattern recognition and behavioral analysis. Cyber threats are as real on the seas as they are ashore, and the best way to stop any attempts at reaching your business data is for us to listen, learn and constantly adapt.
