Who are CRIBB Cyber Security?
CRIBB Cyber Security is an official certification body backed by the UK government that provides end-to-end cyber resilience. CRIBB is the Cyber Security arm of TheICEway ecosystem of companies, and we have cyber security professionals with a wealth of experience and knowledge who can work alongside companies and their staff to educate them and to protect their data.
What is TheICEway ecosystem of companies?
TheICEway provides a blended set of services to clients looking to enable their digital transformation strategies. The ecosystem comprises of a consultancy service, managed services, QA testing, development assistance and resource, future technologies – artificial intelligence and virtual reality – and cyber security through the CRIBB brand, which has just launched an exciting new solution for the Cruise and Cargo industry.
What is CMCA / ‘CRIBB Maritime Cyber Assurance’?
Simply put, CMCA is an affordable alternative to ISO27001 that is recognised by the IASME Consortium. A unique solution, it is primarily designed to help clients increase their protection and to improve their defences. With it we can assess their data protection readiness and then work alongside them to help them achieve as high a level of compliance as possible. Our ultimate goal is to help clients aim for higher profit margins by maximising efficiencies and eliminating weak business processes.
Why does the Cruise and Cargo industry need ‘CRIBB Maritime Cyber Assurance’?
The simple fact of the matter is that cyber-attacks and data breaches are on the rise, with the top 3 cyber security breaches in 2017 affecting around 214 million victims but the top 3 last year affecting over 1.8 billion. That’s an outrageously high rate of growth and perfectly demonstrates just how vigilant and aware we all need to be. When you look at the cruise and cargo industry you can see just how dependent it is becoming on IT, with an abundance of cyber-attacks on ports and ships taking place.
Unfortunately the cruise and cargo industry has also historically failed to recognise cyber security incidents and with a lack of inbuilt encryption or authentication codes for navigation systems, it is easy to see why potential attackers look at shipping as an ‘easy target’. In actual fact, the 2018 Maritime Cyber Security Survey revealed that 1-in-5 respondents had been the victim of a cyber-attack – food for thought…
Aren’t there other options for cruise and cargo?
There aren’t actually any easy or straightforward solutions on offer and the beauty of CMCA is in its simplicity. You’re also talking about a solution that is being offered by experienced professionals at a Government-backed, certification body.
Not only does CMCA guarantee full briefing and consultation throughout the project, but it will also deliver evaluations for existing security policies and the ‘organisation of information’ in general, the current compliance level, the current level of Operations Security, Information Management in general, current policies, procedures and processes, plus supplier relationships and all by an experienced and certified GDPR practitioner.
There is so much more besides too, including assistance with Human Resources and business continuity management – essentially, we will help to completely define your data protection policy and ensure that robust procedures are implemented, with complete training provided.
