Renfinity’s Secure Grid™ - Ports and Cybersecurity

Where security controls are weak, criminals will quickly take advantage. According to a new report provided to InsideSources, the National Maritime Intelligence-Integration Office (NMIIO) and the National Strategic Research Institute (NSRI) are in the middle of a study on cyber risks in the maritime industry, spanning February 2018 to August 2019, which will be presented to the Director of National Intelligence and the National Security Council.

Cybersecurity is a serious issue for maritime industries. Major ocean carriers like Maersk and COSCO and ports like the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of San Diego suffered severe cyber attacks over the last few years, temporarily crippling their supply chains and, in some cases, bringing the flow of goods to a halt. In order for the maritime industry to really crack down on cybercrime, every link of the supply chain must augment its cybersecurity.

One of the biggest cyber risks within the maritime supply chain are third-party vendors, like contractors and software providers. It is important that the entire maritime supply chain should be up to date on cyber risks and cybersecurity initiatives. These initiatives include:

• Focus on coordinating responsibilities and Information-sharing strategies.

• Secure single-factor PIN electronic release systems or ‘ERSs’

• Monitor high value, untraceable commodities containers

• Secure EDIFACT messaging system

• Secure serial data on vessel networks

• Ensure third-party vendors are cybersecure
