Maritime Cyber Security Has Missing Parts

Cyberspace and the maritime environment are integrated and, therefore, share vulnerabilities and as the cyber attack, hacking and threat landscape continues to change fast, global maritime cyber security needs far more international collaboration.  

Ships are increasingly using systems that rely on digitisation, digitalisation, integration, and automation, which call for cyber risk management on board. As technology continues to develop, information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) onboard ships are being networked together, and more frequently connected to the Internet.

The US National Maritime Cyber Security Plan has the same limits as any broad strategic vision. The document focuses on three areas of needed actions:

  • Assessing risks and developing standards of protection.
  • Ensuring information and intelligence sharing between the public and private sectors.
  • Creating a maritime cyber security workforce.

Now, Cyware a Virtual Cyber Fusion Platform provider, has partnered with the US Maritime Transportation System Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MTS-ISAC) to engage with the maritime community’s ability to collect and share threat intelligence in real time. Cyware's purpose aim is to ensure MTS-ISAC’s runs a more efficient end-to-end security automation, cyber security operations with threat hunting and incident response programs. 

The MTS-ISAC aims to improve cyber risk management across the MTS community through collaboration around intelligence, identification, information protection, detection, response and recovery. 

MTS-ISAC has emerged as a trusted point of coordination for some of the most influential private and public sector stakeholders in the global maritime community, representing ports, terminal operators, vessel operators, cruise, classification societies, energy and government industry stakeholders.

Cyware’s Virtual Cyber Fusion Platform delivers next-generation security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) in tandem with automated threat intelligence, allowing organisations to more easily share threat data and collaborate on threat response. This unique combination results in greater visibility into an organisation’s security operations and allows for secure information sharing between partners. 

Whether the target is ships, humans, or logistics chains, the maritime environment continues to be vastly underappreciated for its cybersecurity risks and, ultimately, represents a major and underserved economic vulnerability.

Cyware allows MTS-ISAC to collect and share security alerts on the changing threat landscape and intelligence around specific attacks in the maritime transportation industry. Cyware’s Situation Awareness Platform and Threat Intelligence Exchange, MTS-ISAC members can also automatically share threat intelligence with each other and this includes indicators of compromise, malware alerts, vulnerability advisories, security incidents, and phishing attacks among its global maritime community, according to the company’s announcement.
