Cyber Security as Top Priority
Cyber Security as Top Priority

Knowing how to keep one’s information safe and secure is becoming increasingly…

Knowing how to keep one’s information safe and secure is becoming increasingly important in today’s connected world. This is particularly so in the shipping industry given its heavy reliance upon Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Indeed Wallem-managed ships rely heavily on technology to navigate safely and, like all ships, are vulnerable to cyber threats both intentional and unintentional. This is especially so with the increasing availability of Internet onboard.


Awareness about cyber security and adhering to good cyber security practices are therefore both essential to minimise the risks of cyber-attacks both ashore and at sea. With this in mind, Wallem Group has just launched a new Cyber Security course on ‘Wallem Academy’, our in-house training site.

‘Cyber Security Awareness’ is a Wallem specific e-learning course which aims at providing guidance for all our colleagues, both at sea and ashore on how to protect our important and confidential data from phishing attacks. This course is designed to raise general awareness on what forms of cyber-crime exist and the steps that should be taken to avoid falling prey to them.

All staff need be aware of these issues so as to protect both Wallem in its business dealings and ensure operational efficiency. Topics include: safe computing, safe remote and mobile computing. The course will enable staff both ashore and at sea to protect both the Company and themselves against cyberattacks, have a greater awareness of social engineering, identify password best practices and find out how to minimise security risks in all forms of electronic communication.
