Cydome is the leading cybersecurity company whose products are specifically designed for the maritime industry. The company caters to fleets and offshore vessels with its bespoke, comprehensive cybersecurity suite that eliminates the shortcomings related to off-the-shelf products. With Cydome’s unique, proprietary technology, it allows vessels to have complete, automated, built-in cybersecurity checks and real-time monitoring for both IT and OT systems on vessels during their voyage at sea.
To conduct a thorough cybersecurity assessment and to understand how at risk your network is, businesses need to be able to calculate the effectiveness of any cybersecurity protocols and systems they have in place. This is one of the most challenging aspects for any IT team, and it simply isn’t enough to work on the basis that if there has been no cyber-attacks or breaches, then the cybersecurity defences are robust and effective. To do this, organisations need to be able to measure effectively their risk vulnerability via KPIs and metrics. Measurements for shipping companies, which are particularly vulnerable to cyber-attacks, should be done in a dual-layered approach: the organisation as a whole and the vessels/onboard assets.
Cydome’s solution assists IT managers to measure their cybersecurity effectiveness and how at risk they are of a cyberattack. With Cydome’s real- time monitoring capabilities and the continuous vulnerability scanning (attack simulation), all vulnerabilities are easily reported together with the mitigation recommendation. Furthermore, with unauthorised/3rd parties access detection, the company can demonstrate the frequency of access to internal networks and its monitoring.
How we are different
• Ship-wide protection - This is particularly important, as coverage of part of a vessel or its systems will not fully protect the ship if the attacker can penetrate from another vector. Unlike other operators who can only secure parts of a vessel, Cydome provides protection of the whole ship - none of the solutions provided today by the communications and satellite providers can offer such full-spectrum coverage.
• Cydome invests a large amount of its profits into research and development to ensure its solutions are always up to date and preventing attacks. They recently partnered with Constanta maritime university, to solidify their commitment and to act as a joint hub for all maritime participants to contribute to the cyberthreats database.
• Compliance with regulations – The solution is designed to assist ship owners and operators to effectively validate ongoing compliance with international maritime regulations. The solution provides fleets with cost-effective, automated inspection and analysis tools to conduct cybersecurity gap analysis under the appropriate maritime regulations.
