Maritime security specialist Naval Dome has introduced a new dashboard to manage the cybersecurity status of systems on its ships. It allows onboard and shoreside staff to monitor fleet-wide system data, even when offline. 

The solution collects and collates data captured by the Naval Dome’s endpoint cyber protection system that can be used at the company’s headquarters or onboard the vessel, providing the master or chief engineer with the ship’s overall cyber status. 

The Naval Dome Dashboard is suitable for ships fitted with multiple, complex technologies. It can also be customised to meet the operator’s specific requirements and can be integrated with existing dashboards. 

“The aim is to let shipowners know the cyber status of their onboard systems without having to react in any way,” said Itai Sela, CEO of Naval Dome. “It’s our problem to deal with the attack. Naval Dome can deliver a very smart system that does not require any training. With just one click, shipowners can see the cyber activities of their entire fleet and control it.”        

Once the endpoint system has gathered information from navigation and machinery equipment, the data is accessed via the dashboard display on a PC. The dashboard provides information on the status of critical equipment, allowing crew and onshore personnel to quickly determine the number of PC-based systems onboard each ship and which of them are protected.

“Use in narrow bandwidth satellite communication systems makes it a very cost-effective solution for displaying critical information, keeping the costumer online and up-to-date,” said Sela. “Naval Dome knowhow offers multiple layers of protection and anomaly detection.

“In this way, secure use of onboard systems can be more efficiently monitored, and lessons can be learned from the experience to further optimise fleet efficiency, ultimately reducing the costs related to resolving non-cyber events.”
