Naval Dome unveils new software-based cyber protection system

“The S-Model is something operators can use right now,” says Naval Dome’s vice-president, marketing, Paola Rossi “The S-Model is something operators can use right now,” says Naval Dome’s vice-president, marketing, Paola Rossi

To facilitate shipowner demand for an immediate cybersecurity solution for critical systems, Naval Dome has introduced a new software-based cyber protection that can be easily installed on all ship, port, or offshore OT systems, including navigational equipment, machinery control systems and cargo handling equipment.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} S-Marine Dome and S-Port Dome are aimed at those ship, offshore energy and terminal operators requiring instant protection without having to go through lengthy type approval processes or can no longer afford to wait for suppliers to upgrade or replace critical systems.

“We have introduced the S-Model to provide an easy-to-install, Level 2 security solution to offer an immediate remedy to the cyber problem,” said Naval Dome vice president, business development, Ido Ben Moshe.

“While Naval Dome offers DNV GL SL4-certified cybersecurity thorough its T-Marine and T-Port Dome solutions, these have been developed primarily for installation by original equipment manufacturers (OEM). Until now, there has been little by way of an effective software solution with which operators can use to immediately protect their systems. The S-Model fills that void.”

Naval Dome’s vice-president, marketing, Paola Rossi, added: “While we of course recommend installation of our Security Level 4-certified T-Model, after analysing the market and taking onboard customer feedback, there is now market demand for a lower level of security to deliver immediate protection. The S-Model is something operators can use right now to provide a level of cyber protection to legacy systems or newer systems awaiting upgrade.”

Naval Dome’s software solution can be installed without changing the way in which critical systems function or that requires a new type approval certificate in place.

“Compatible with classification society SL2 requirements and all PC-based OT systems, S-Marine and S-Port Dome are bespoke solutions adapted to each specific platform, irrespective of the system type or brand,” said Ms Rossi. “The S-Model is an effective security software solution that can be simply installed right now by the crew or operator.”

The new solution provides complete prevention, detection and alert capabilities for all legacy OT and modern IoT systems, blocking unauthorised network intrusions and exe.files from running on the computer. Only approved valid files can run on the computer. The S-Model features an effective “Endpoint” security event logger to defend systems against Denial of Service (DoS), Ransomware, Zero-day and Malware attacks.{/mprestriction}

  • COVID-19: VIKING offers e-learning remedy

    VIKING Safety Academy has addressed a fast-emerging seafarer training issue brought by coronavirus by delivering an e-learning tool that can keep seafarers STCW-compliant until restrictions on movement and social interactions come to an end.

    With many countries in lockdown, face to face seafarer training is also being suspended and some flag administrations have responded by granting automatic three-month extensions to the STCW Certificates seafarers must update every five years. However, VIKING Safety Academy has designed a unique training set-up so that seafarers can undergo training for a full certificate renewal even while the crisis persists.

    VIKING Safety Academy has worked with Estonia’s Reval Safety Training to offer STCW refresher training on an e-learning basis for Estonian seafarers. The training set-up includes: Personal Survival Techniques, Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting, Proficiency in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats, Fast Rescue Boats and Advanced Fire Fighting.

    On March 12, Estonia’s Maritime Administration informed the EU that e-learning covering the theoretical part of STCW training would be sufficient to support a certificate extension for Estonian seafarers valid for up to six months.

    “Seafarers can now use e-learning to train and renew certificates during these extraordinary times and maintain proof of competence,” said Camilla Runge Nissen, VIKING safety academy product manager, training. “They can secure a longer six months extension and can make good use of the time getting ahead in the compliance process.”

    Once the seafarer has completed the e-learning course, whether onboard or at home, he/she is given a provisional STCW certificate extension. Should conditions allow, seafarers can visit a Reval Safety Training center during the six-month period for classroom/practical training and secure a five-year Certificate of Proficiency, or complete once the crisis passes.

    While the STCW certificates extension based on e-learning is only available to Estonian residents today, the course could easily be extended to other flag states. “All elements of the temporary package have been approved by the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA), we are already talking to other flag states and we can quickly roll this out.”

    The Norwegian Maritime Authority recently announced that it will allow seafarers onboard Norwegian vessels to join vessels until July 1st this year, even if they have only completed the theoretical relevant parts of STCW. “Under this guidance, e-learning is part of the picture, demonstrating that the set-up developed for Estonia can be very useful elsewhere.”

    Benny Carlsen, VIKING senior vice president, global sales and marketing said that the new e-learning initiative aligns closely with group efforts to keep seafarers and owners compliant, safe, and as hassle and worry free as possible. “In extraordinary times, we need proactive and digitally-powered solutions to ensure that a training headache does not become a lasting issue.”
