Speedcast and HudsonCyber team to provide solution for mitigating cybersecurity threats

Speedcast and HudsonCyber have teamed to provide a new tailored solution for maritime companies, including cruise operators, that will help mitigate cybersecurity threats and become compliant with new international cybersecurity regulations.

Speedcast CyberInsights is based on a risk management and assessment service that enables decision-makers of any organization to evaluate their current cybersecurity protection quickly and cost-effectively.

Amazon Web platform

Built on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the CyberInsights platform integrates industry-leading cybersecurity standards, frameworks and standardized practices and aligns with International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2021 Guidelines on Maritime Cyber Risk Management, as well as other industry-leading cybersecurity standards, frameworks and standardized practices.

‘According to Cybersecurity Ventures, cybercrime damages will reach $10.5 trillion annually by 2025, and it is our ongoing goal to continue enhancing our cybersecurity capabilities to protect our customers,’ said Jeffrey Irwin, VP, Product Management at Speedcast.

'As part of Speedcast’s cybersecurity product suite, CyberInsights is a robust solution that will strengthen our customers’ cybersecurity capabilities and drive continuous improvements by identifying and developing a tailored cybersecurity program in a timely and cost-effective manner, compared with hiring a traditional consulting firm,’ he noted.

IMO Guidelines alignment

The CyberInsights framework aligns with IMO 2021 Guidelines and also integrates with cybersecurity standards as described in the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, the Center for Internet Security’s Critical Controls, and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001, among others.

Coupled with Speedcast’s consultative support approach, CyberInsights facilitates real-time benchmarking and monitoring that tracks mitigation progress.
