Be Cyber Aware!

Be Cyber Aware at Sea – film

OCIMF has worked with the global maritime cyber security awareness campaign “Be Cyber Aware at Sea”, other industry sponsors and Fidra Films to produce a new film highlighting the vital and increasing importance of cyber security to the maritime industry.

The film uses real-life case studies to show how easy it is for cyber criminals to target individual employees, who are often the weakest link in the security chain. The film is educational, entertaining and easy to share via social media. It gives tips to help employees avoid being an easy target for cyber criminals and is supported by six shorter films looking at specific risks: personal devices; social media; sextortion; passwords; safe browsing and phishing.

Andrew Cassels, OCIMF Director, supports the release: “This film starts to tackle the most vulnerable element of cyber protection: the human element. Educating our mariners is the first line of defence; they all work in social media with ease but need to understand how innocent actions can cause harm to wider networks and systems. Wide distribution of this film and the supporting material will start to prepare industry for the cyber challenges ahead.”

The film is free to view. We encourage  readers to watch the film and share it with colleagues.
