Speedcast and HudsonCyber team up to help companies regain cyber control

Speedcast and HudsonCyber have launched a new cybersecurity assessment solution to help the maritime industry protect themselves from cyber-attacks and meet regulatory requirements.

Speedcast CyberInsights is based on a Lloyd’s List Intelligence Digital Innovation risk management and assessment service that enables decision-makers to evaluate their current cybersecurity protection quickly and cost-effectively.

Built on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the CyberInsights platform integrates cybersecurity standards, frameworks and standardised practices and aligns with International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2021 Guidelines on Maritime Cyber Risk Management, as well as other cybersecurity standards, frameworks and standardised practices.

“According to Cybersecurity Ventures, cybercrime damages will reach $10.5 trillion USD annually by 2025, and it is our ongoing goal to continue enhancing our cybersecurity capabilities to protect our customers,” said Jeffrey Irwin, vice president, product management at Speedcast. “As part of Speedcast’s cybersecurity product suite, CyberInsights is a robust solution that will strengthen our customers’ cybersecurity capabilities and drive continuous improvements by identifying and developing a tailored cybersecurity program in a timely and cost-effective manner, compared with hiring a traditional consulting firm.”

The CyberInsights framework not only aligns with IMO 2021 Guidelines but also integrates with cybersecurity standards as described in the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, the Centre for Internet Security’s Critical Controls, and the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) 27001, among others. Coupled with Speedcast’s consultative support approach, CyberInsights facilitates real-time benchmarking and monitoring that tracks mitigation progress.

“Our integrated approach offers Speedcast’s customers a powerful tool for implementing and sustaining their cybersecurity strategy, helping them to mitigate damages arising from cyber threats," said Cynthia Hudson, CEO of HudsonAnalytix, parent company of HudsonCyber. “The world has become more connected, and as the threats against information and operational systems increase, this solution becomes critical. Combining our unique cybersecurity capabilities with the world’s leading global satellite solutions provider, we are very pleased to collaborate with Speedcast to deliver high value-add, cost efficient solutions to the industry.”
