Maritime Cyber Security awareness refers to how much end-users know about the Cyber Security threats their networks face, the risks they introduce and how much it reduces the company’s and personal security.

This risk is considered to be so high that cyber risk management is required by IMO (paragraph 1.2.2 of the ISM Code) to be incorporated into company safety management systems from 2021.

End-users are considered to be the weakest link and the primary vulnerability within a network/organisation. It is therefore vital that all employees have a certain knowledge about how to act in the area of IT while on board ships, travelling to and from ships, as well as at home, and establish appropriate safeguards against cyber incidents.

This course educates the readers about the most common threats and how to avoid them in order to keep both their employers and also their own IT-system free from potentials security threats.
