There has been a lot of publicity recently about the need for the shipping industry to wake up to the very real threat of malicious cyberattacks.
Thome takes cyber security very seriously and continuously monitors its protocols and procedures to keep up to date with the ever changing cyber threats and technological advances in cyber security.
“A significant portion of cyber threats arrive in the form of email so we have invested in a layered approach in our network security systems to weed out these increasing sophisticated attacks,” said Claes Eek Thorstensen, President of the Thome Group.
“Communication to our personnel on the potential dangers is also key. We educate crew in best practise protocols and emphasise the importance of every individual to exercise due diligence when online either during the course of their working day or relaxing when off-duty. Moving forward additional security measures, such as USB control, are being introduced without compromising our day to day business operational efficiency,” he added.
