Nir Ayalon, CEO and Co-Founder of Cydome, commented: “Winning eight gold awards in such a competitive award series for our unique solution is a strong recognition of our work and our first-in-class technology which supports the protection of the entire supply chain. Each element of our solution has won, and we are particularly proud to gain acknowledgement in the Cybersecurity Audit and Assessment categories.”
The latest developments in maritime cybercrime have seen the successful use of a single ship attack to infect port and shore-based facilities and subsequently spread to an entire fleet. Unfortunately, the owner-operators see each ship and shore-based asset as independent technology silos, but the cybercriminals see only a single, highly-connected technology stack and are constantly testing every element for vulnerabilities. The maritime sector moves over 96% of the world’s goods each year, worth trillions of dollars. The vessels are seen as high-value targets which, because of their isolation at sea and dependency on multiple technologies, can present multiple vulnerabilities. But we are now seeing the threats and attacks reaching beyond the single vessel at sea.
