Naval Dome adds cyber monitoring dashboard

Maritime security company Naval Dome has added a new option for management of the cyber security status of all protected systems onboard ships, allowing shipboard and shoreside staff to access fleet-wide system data, even when offline.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Naval Dome Dashboard collects and collates all the data captured by the company’s Endpoint cyber protection package from a variety of systems on board, including navigation equipment and machinery such as ECDIS and radar, for use either at the company’s HQ or on the vessel, to provide an overview of the ship’s cyber status.

Data can be uploaded from Endpoint to Naval Dome’s Cloud system, which can then be accessed by shoreside operators.

The new Dashboard provides a status update on all critical equipment, allowing users to determine the number of PC-based systems onboard each ship and which of them are protected. A Cyber State section also provides information on the number of cyber security anomalies detected (caused by issuers such as GPS spoofing, for example), as well as a Cyber Map that displays the geographical origin of cyber-attack attempts recorded in the Naval Dome cyber database.

The Dashboard additionally indicates which systems are ‘connected’ and which are offline, when systems were last updated, and if an attack is in progress while it is being dealt with by the Endpoint system.

If an anomaly alert is issued the Dashboard will enable the operator to assess how the crew reacted to the problem, pinpointing the precise location of a suspected event and detailing who was using the equipment at the time.

“Naval Dome knowhow offers multiple layers of protection and anomaly detection, the effectiveness of which has been proved by comparing systems protected by Endpoint with those which are not,” said Naval Dome CEO, Itai Sela.

“In this way, secure use of onboard systems can be more efficiently monitored and lessons can be learned from the experience to further optimise fleet efficiency, ultimately reducing the costs related to resolving non cyber events.”

“The aim is to let shipowners know the cyber status of their onboard systems without having to react in any way. It’s our problem to deal with the attack. Naval Dome can deliver a very smart system that does not require any training. With just one click, shipowners can see the cyber activities of their entire fleet and control it.”{/mprestriction}
