Thome reviews cyber security

Shipmanagement company Thome has announced that it has begun a review of its cyber security protocols, in reaction to what it calls “the very real threat” of malicious cyber-attacks on the shipping industry.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The company already has security programmes in place and says it continuously monitors its protocols and procedures to keep up to date with changing cyber threats and technological advances in cyber security. These defences are being bolstered with funding for a multi-layered system to guard against intrusion.

“A significant portion of cyber threats arrive in the form of e-mail 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 practice 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.”{/mprestriction}
