Tailored cybersecurity solutions for the maritime sector

20 May 2024

The cornerstone of building out a cybersecurity safe environment starts with the vessel. Considering the unique architecture and set-up of each vessel, IEC Telecom provides a tailored cybersecurity strategy rather than an off-the-shelf solution. IEC Telecom Group conducts risk assessments onboard vessels – a process that has evolved from traditional site surveys to include comprehensive risk assessments aimed at identifying vulnerabilities and assessing associated risks. It is also important to offer cybersecurity solutions at competitive prices, ensuring accessibility for all stakeholders involved in maritime operations. OptiShield is IEC Telecom Group’s cybersecurity solution that delivers protection for onboard networks and aids in enforcing IMO compliance on vessels. Delivered through unified modular software which considers compliance, protection, and secure access, OptiShield enables users to elevate their cybersecurity measures to an advanced level. The IEC Telecom team is available 24/7 to monitor risks and take action within a few minutes to reduce impact, always aware that the defining modern challenge in cybersecurity is dealing with the availability of high bandwidth. New hybrid solutions and integration with AI-driven solutions into a cybersecurity suite is the way forward. Through machine learning algorithms and behavioural analytics, AI-powered defence mechanisms can identify anomalous patterns and potential security breaches in real-time.
