BIMCO, International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) and Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) launched a new cyber security awareness poster at Singapore Maritime Week 2017.
The launch was greeted with enthusiasm by the audience discussing cyber security at the Singapore Maritime Technology Conference and Exhibition.
The poster provides basic information to shipboard personnel on their role and contribution to managing maritime cyber risks. It also highlights how staff need to be aware of how to respond effectively to cyber risks. The advice complements information provided on procedural protection measures also available in the industry Guidelines for Cyber Security Onboard Ships.
