BLOG: Securing the Future of Ships, Ports and the Maritime Experience


Cyber threats are not going anywhere. In fact, in a recent Global Threat Landscape Report, A Semiannual Report by FortiGuard Labs, cybercrime is one of the most profitable illegal industries in the world.

As the maritime industry embarks on a journey to modernize ships and ports to improve efficiency and maximize the customer experience, a mix of cyber and physical systems support ship to shore operations. Modernization increases connectivity - more devices, users, and applications on the network – expanding the attack surface and creating opportunity for the cybercriminal.

Like all industries dependent on the safety and reliability of their critical control systems, security modernization should be an integrated part of this journey. The Fortinet Security Fabric enables seamless security for ports and ships reducing risk across information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) environments. Schedule a meeting with one of our security experts during Seatrade Cruise Global to learn more.
