According to the IMO Guideline MSC 96/4/1 dated on February 4th 2016, measures to enhance maritime security were introduced.

The course is designed to develop understanding & awareness of key aspects of cybersecurity in response to the vulnerability of ships to cyber risks and is not intended to give technical guidance for the ship or personnel on board.

On the basis of a risk-based approach to cybersecurity, shipowners and operators are advised on how to assess their operations and develop procedures and actions to maintain the security of cybersystems on board.

The course will support the company in establishing procedures, plans and instructions, including checklists as appropriate, for relevant key shipboard operations.

1) Introduction to cybersecurity onboard

2) Identification & response to:

- Risks related to emails and how to behave in a safe manner (phishing attacks where the user clicks on a link to a malicious site 
- Risks related to internet usage where data movement is less controlled and monitored (social media, chat forums, cloud-based file storage) 
- Risks related to the use of own devices (missing security patches and controls, such as anti-virus) that may transfer the risk to the environment to which they are connected
- Risks related to installing and maintaining software on company hardware, where the infection can be propagated, starting from infected hardware (removable media) or software (infected package) 
- Risks related to poor software and data security practices where no anti-virus checks or authenticity verifications are performed 

4) Safeguarding user information, passwords and digital certificates 

5) Cyber risks in relation to the physical presence of non-company personnel, eg, where third-party technicians are left to work on equipment without supervision 

6) Detecting suspicious activity and how to report if a possible cyber incident is in progress. 

7) Awareness of the consequences/impact of cyber incidents to the safety & operation of the ship 

8) Understanding how to implement preventative maintenance routines such as anti-virus and anti-malware, patching, backups, and incidence-response planning and testing

9) Procedures for protecting against service providers’ removable media before they are allowed to be connected to the ship’s systems

Any professional working in the maritime industry that must be aware of the risks and hazards of cybersecurity and of the required preventive procedures.
