Cyber & Ship Security Computer-Based Training (CBT)
In recent years, it has become apparent that maritime companies, ships, and ports are not adequately protected from security threats. IMO has issued a resolution giving shipowners and managers until 2021 to incorporate cyber-risk management into their ship safety plans. And the Liberian Registry has taken the typically proactive approach for which it has become renowned by launching a Cyber and Ship Security Computer Based Training (CBT) which provides a comprehensive overview of cyber-security issues as well as advice on best practice pertaining to piracy, stowaways and general ship security.
The Cyber and Ship Security training contains important familiarization and knowledge that seafarers and shoreside staff require when working with vessels – from new threats such a cyber-security, as well as best practices pertaining to piracy, stowaways and general ship security. The sea has always been a potentially hazardous and dangerous working environment. This state-of-the-art training will improve maritime safety and security knowledge and reduce risk to seafarers, vessels and companies.
Our computer based training is divided into 4 modules with ongoing evaluation through a series of questions. Once the seafarer scores over 80% on every module, a training certificate will be generated.
Over 40% of crewmembers report sailing on a vessel that has become infected with a virus or malware - and only 1 in 8 crewmembers have received cyber-security training. This module provides a comprehensive overview of the evolving field of cyber-security; including concepts such as different types of malware, network security, identity theft, and risk management.
Roughly 2,000 stowaways are caught each year hiding on ships. This module provides a comprehensive overview of stowaways; including prevention, relevant regulations, specific risk assessments, ISPS requirements, and best management practices to prevent stowaways.
Since 2009, there has been an average of 317 pirate attacks against ships worldwide each year. This module provides a comprehensive overview of anti-piracy measures; including detailed courses of action that are designed to assist shipmasters and their crews on preventing and suppressing acts of piracy and armed robbery against their ships.
GENERAL SECURITY TRAINING
In recent years it has become apparent that no matter the size of the organization, maritime companies, ships, and ports are not adequately protected from security threats. This module provides a comprehensive overview of common maritime security threats; including risk of criminal activity, threats to ship security, port-based drug trafficking risks, security roles and responsibilities onboard, and an introduction to the ISPS code.
