Who will gain by taking this course?
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 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.
