Advancement in broadband technologies and the move towards ‘Big Data’ and ‘Ship Intelligence’ could leave the maritime industry vulnerable to cyber-crime unless it develops a better awareness of ICT (information, communication technology) security and adopts security best practice.
In this week’s spotlight we present fifteen things that the industry needs to know about safeguarding data and cyber security following our review of a White Paper, published by ESG Global Security entitled “Somebody’s Watching You”.
The final text draft for COP21 to agree a global climate deal has been reached.

The UK Chamber of Shipping and Fathom Maritime Intelligence have entered into partnership to deliver practical, focussed industry forums to support ship owners and operators in managing key aspects of maritime operations.
Following COP21, the IMO has pledged to continue its mission to reduce the industry’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
