Cyber criminals target the shipping industry, Norway warns

from NMLEA

In an article published by Safety4Sea (click here for full article), the Norwegian National Security Authority (NSM) advises of an increase in the number of cyber campaigns targeting several different sectors since June 2019 and states that both the maritime sector and the oil and gas sector have been victims of such targeted attacks.

The report also highlights that “both obvious and less obvious companies may be affected, meaning that all types of ships, as well as shipowners’, land-based infrastructure can be vulnerable to cyber incidents. In fact, in a statement of 19 August 2019, the Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA) states, “Especially shipowners that operate in ISPS/MARSEC level two areas or higher should be aware of the situation.”

Put simply, the maritime industry, from terminal operators to shipping companies, and from cruise lines to port authorities, this is a real and present danger.
