Kiel-based company wants to increase cyber security

Increasing digitalization and networking are increasing the risk of cyber attacks in the maritime industry.

A new company that has now been founded in Kiel aims to strengthen IT security in the maritime industry. To this end, company founder and long-standing managing director of a software company, Martin Lochte-Holtgreven, has launched the web portal marcybersec.com [ds_preview].

With the publication of the web portal, Lochte-Holtgreven is providing a central directory for IT security that is specifically geared towards the needs of the maritime industry. It provides direct links for centralized access to specific reports on cyber attacks, regulations and recommendations for action as well as additional documents.

Web portal provides information on cyber topics

“The first step to actively managing IT security is to understand the threats and regulations. Marcybersec.com makes the widely scattered information on the Internet centrally accessible and focused for the maritime industry worldwide,” reports web portal operator Martin Lochte-Holtgreven.

According to the information provided, the entries on the website are selected individually in order to provide the most specific information possible while minimizing redundancies. For example, the directory of reported incidents only lists entries in which the attacked institution is named. Over 70 such attacks are already listed. In addition, links to the relevant regulations and further recommendations for action provide companies with direct support for increasing IT security.
