In many fields of life, we rely on computers to aid us and the maritime industry is no exception. Cyber-attacks are one of the greatest threats in the 21st century. In the past, most vessels relied on the ‘air gap’ to defend against cyber-attacks. Nowadays vessels are connected: ranging from internet for crew welfare and administration to connected devices brought onboard by passengers or crew.
Cyber-attacks on ships can render the ship inoperable, cause accidents or even disrupt vital services. RH Marine can assist in mitigating those risks and provide solutions for safe and continuous operation.
RH Marine has certified Cyber Security Experts to advise you on cyber security and help you to manage operational security risks. As system integrator for specialized maritime industries we understand the importance of combining operational knowledge with advanced cyber security solutions in order to have a safe, reliable and efficient operation.
RH Marine is a trusted partner of 15+ top-class navies worldwide.
The cyber threats are real for all vessels, but the risks may differ. For navies, a denial of service attack can severely reduce the operational capabilities in times of need. For offshore vessels, a ransomware attack may cause serious financial or environmental damages. Onboard yachts, data leaks can significantly impact the privacy onboard.
The 'air gap' alone is no longer a valid mean of cyber security and while with most newbuild vessels cyber security is taken into account, measures should be taken for currently operating vessels as well.
