White paper on VDR cyber security
The shipping industry is increasingly embracing Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT) in a move to transform and streamline many aspects of ship operations. This means connecting computers and sensors on ships at sea with shoreside IT networks, typically through secure Internet links.
While these technical innovations can bring big benefits in terms of greater visibility into the performance of assets and improved efficiency,
they also can create new risks in terms of vulnerability to cyber attacks on the shipboard and shoreside IT infrastructure.
In this white paper we discuss the nature of cyber threats to VDRs, best practices for securing VDR data and security measures designed into Danelec Marine VDR systems to protect against cyber risks.
