Don’t cry wolf
Astonishing figures from Israeli cyber security company Naval Dome reveal that, by the end of the year, cyber attacks on the maritime industry will have increased by 900% in the past four years. The company told a virtual conference last week that in 2017 there were 50 significant hacks reported, in 2018 it was 120, and last year saw more than 310. This year the number is expected to rise to more than 500 – with many more going unreported. Since the notPetya attack on Maersk and FedEx, “attacks are increasing at an alarming rate”, it said.
