MSC staff to take cyber training course

Lee Williamson, SOFTimpact Lee Williamson, SOFTimpact

Container shipping company MSC has agreed a deal with Cyprus-based maritime software provider SOFTimpact to deliver cybersecurity training to its 160 staff based on the island.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The training will include SOFTimpact’s End User Awareness course, which runs for four hours and covers cyber threats impacting on maritime operations. This will also include live demonstrations of hacking against popular business technologies as part of the training process.

“Cyber security has many parts to it, which all need to be worked on to achieve cyber maturity within a company,” said Lee Williamson, senior consultant on maritime cyber security at SOFTimpact.

“Many focus too much on the technology for the solution, but there is no black box with flashing lights to fix this. Only by combining training, technology, reviewing business processes for gaps and then implementing the correct policies can a company hope to reduce its cyber risk level.”

“MSC has been smart in realising this and taking the step to ensure the ‘human element’ is dealt with, and I look forward to meeting and training their team here in Cyprus.”{/mprestriction}
