North P&I Club announced a cooperation with Hudson Analytix, to encourage greater awareness of shipping’s cyber-risks and offer operators greater reassurance and guidance in avoiding the risks and costs of claims associated with cyber-breaches.
To this end, the Club informed that it offers a 20% discount on operators using the evaluation platform, HACyberLogix, a cloud-based programme, designed to provide maritime transportation decision-makers with the ability to assess their organisation’s cyber security capabilities.
The threat of cyber-risk is at the forefront of the shipping industry in the wake of the WannaCry and NotPetya attacks earlier this year. Through an assessment of the policies, processes and technologies that contribute to their cybersecurity posture across 12 different areas, HACyberLogix enables shipowners, operators and managers to realise opportunities for cyber security improvement, as well as guiding their longer-term strategic investment to reduce exposure to the risks of cyber-attack.
Colin Gillespie, Deputy Director (Loss Prevention), at North P&I Club commented: “Shipping companies should be acting now to assess their risks. Our partnership with HA – Cyber should assist ship owners to understand their cyber risk profile and direct resources where they are most needed.”
