Videotel adds cyber training programme

KVH Videotel has launched a cyber security training programme, produced in association with shipping association BIMCO, to address the threat of ransomware and other computer system breaches.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The main topics covered in the new ‘Cyber Security at Sea’ training programme include the nature of cyber security threats, how to assess risks to a ship’s IT and OT (operational technology), how these risks can be reduced, and how to respond to a cyber security breach or attack.

“A cyber-attack can severely impact and impair vessel performance,” said Mark Woodhead, KVH senior vice president, EMEA.

“Many cyber incidents onboard are triggered accidentally by seafarers opening phishing e-mail attachments or hyperlinks, or using infected removable media, so this training programme explores how to minimise these risks by making personnel more aware of the types of malware.”

‘Cyber Security at Sea’ is available via Videotel on Demand (VOD) and as a computer-based training (CBT) module.{/mprestriction}
