"Reporting cyber crime at sea is crucial so we can understand the extent of this new and complex threat. The safety and financial risks to operations are significant and it is time to do something about it before it's too late""
Mark Sutcliffe, Managing Director CSO Alliance
Cyber criminals have been quick to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the Internet in the Marine and Offshore industries, particularly as we are very much now immersed in the digital era with Information Technology and Operational Technology at the heart of everything we do at sea.
Specialist criminal groups have the ability and know how to target port facilities, commercial shipping vessels and the offshore energy sector with the consequences potentially being catastrophic for all stakeholders
The CSO Alliance and Airbus bring together the first global Maritime Cyber Security Reporting (MCSR) centre. The MCSR provides a central point of contact to report cyber crime or request information or advice.l on cyber issues at sea and offshore.
The easiest way report cyber crime is by using our online free submission tool or calling our 24/7 free cyber hot line.
Cyber incidents do not always come with malicious intent and may be the result of poor onboard cyber hygiene and culture. In order to help us develop the 'Be Cyber Aware At Sea' awareness campaign, please also inform us of any non malicious internal breaches of security onboard.
