Shipping must learn from Maersk cyber attack – tighten security or be next, warning - The Loadstar
Lars Jensen, CEO of CyberKeel and SeaIntelliegence, said some phone systems were still down and bills of lading unavailable in some places.
Mr Jensen warns, in a blog this morning, that weak security is endemic in the shipping industry: some 44% of carriers show “signs of low levels of cyber security related to very basic elements”.
He notes that one top-20 carrier allows shippers on its e-commerce platform to use “x” as a password. Another top five carrier states that “12345” would be a medium-strength password.
Mr Jensen points out that the fact the attack spread laterally through Maersk’s different business units shows that the firm’s level of security was not high enough.
Bon, ça vient d’un vendeur de solutions de sécurité mais certainement bien informé…
