ClassNK Consulting Service has announced the launch of a cybersecurity training service (e-learning), developed in cooperation with KDDI Corporation (KDDI) and KDDI Digital Security (KDS).
Main features include:
- The program is focusing on the maritime industries.
- The program supports Japanese and English and provides a certificate of completion after a comprehension test. This certificate can be used for an education record of Cybersecurity Management System.
- The program is available anywhere and anytime via smart device and PC.
- The program is certified by ClassNK in compliance with the Guidelines on Cybersecurity Onboard Ships Version 3, produced and supported by BIMCO (The Baltic and International Maritime Council).
In a statement released by ClassNK, the classification society says that the increasing use of many solutions utilising “Big Data” and IoT technologies has brought benefits to the industry but it has also introduced cyber risks among maritime industries. Under these circumstances, it’s an important first step towards cyber safety for those who are engaged in ship operation and other related industries to gain proper knowledge. NKCS, KDDI and KDS offer a training program combining the companies’ expertise in offshore and onshore.
