Swedish maritime training company Seably is launching a new cybersecurity awareness training online course to assist companies in managing compliance with IMO’s 2021 cyber requirements, in collaboration with marine insurance providers Alandia and cyber security company Deductive Labs.
The course modules have been structured with content specifically developed by Deductive Labs in line with the established standards and regulations. The virtual training provides instruction both online and offline, and delivers certification of IMO and ISM Code compliance for onboard audits upon completion.
“When designing these courses, we included specialised material that we know from experience creates the right frame of mind. Our goal is to eliminate weaknesses and vulnerabilities at all levels and within all systems,” said Johan Sjölund, Business Development Manager for Deductive Labs.
“Cyber-security is a complex reality. However, with over 15 years of security knowledge and experience in this field, we are confident that this bespoke training improves cyber security and goes beyond the specified regulations.”
Seably will add the new course to its existing digital marketplace for online training products, which include IMO and ISM code compliant courses in addition to flag state-approved STCW instruction, introductory programmes and reflective learning.
“Unfortunately, cyber-attacks are on the increase. They are constantly evolving and becoming more common. An attack on a vessel’s critical systems could easily threaten the safety of a ship as well as the business of shipping. No one within our sector can ignore this risk,” said Andrea Lodolo, CEO of Seably.
“We are introducing this complete and timely package of training courses to strengthen on shore and on board defences. These will equip ship owners and personnel with the required knowledge and skill-sets to ward off cyber threats.”
