Naval Dome signs new cyber client
Ship management services provider Anglo-Eastern has signed a memorandum of understanding on cyber security with Naval Dome, Naval Dome announced on 21 October.
Under the agreement, Naval Dome will provide Anglo-Eastern with cyber security research and consultancy services to ensure its 650+ vessel fleet is protected from cyber attacks.
Naval Dome will carry out an evaluation of Anglo-Eastern’s cyber position and make recommendations on how systems can be better protected.
As part of the agreement, Naval Dome and Anglo-Eastern will look to collaborate with OEMs and operational technology service providers to incorporate more effective security solutions for both new vessels and existing ships with legacy equipment.
Itai Sela, CEO, Naval Dome, said: 'We are delighted to sign this cooperation agreement with Anglo-Eastern. All ships must operate with equipment capable of preventing the most sophisticated of attacks from penetrating critical systems.
'As such, we believe that all players – ship owners, ship managers, offshore operators and OEMS – need to collaborate more on how best to cost-effectively eradicate the problem once and for all. We hope equipment suppliers will step up to the challenge.'
