IT security CBT

US-based SOCP (Ship Operations Cooperative Program) has developed a computer-based training aimed at increasing mariners’ Information Systems Security Awareness (ISSA).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}

The course covers best practices regarding passwords, social media, personal use of workplace computers, and how to maintain security for corporate networks. Developed with support from the US Maritime Administration (MARAD), the training includes a section regarding vessels operated or chartered by government agencies.

Quiz questions test the user’s understanding of the topics being covered. And after a final assessment, students may print out a “Cyber Warrior” CBT completion certificate.

The Information Systems Security Awareness course is scheduled for release on World Maritime Day, which will be held on 25 September 2014.

SOCP says that it will distribute one copy of the CBT at no cost to all US maritime academies and other training facilities, maritime labour unions, and owners and operators of US flag vessels, with additional copies available through its website.
