Cyber security threats have increased over the past few years in the maritime industry. With the increasing use of systems with embedded software on ships and mobile offshore platforms, cyber security is becoming critical not only for data protection, but also for reliable operations.

Cyber security is widely recognised as a problem throughout many industries, Seagull now offers an immediate solution to help you train your staff to be cyber secure. This easy-to-understand course is intended for a wider audience; the material also leverages key safety management practices and shows how they can be applied to cyber security within the maritime and offshore industries. The e-learning modules explain in simple steps how and where cyber-attacks may target not only your direct IT infrastructure, but also the embedded software in assorted operational technology (OT) systems on board.

On completion of this course you will receive a Certificate of Completion from Ocean Technologies Group, powered by Marlins, Seagull and Videotel.

The Master/senior officer onboard or a senior official onshore must sign and stamp your application form to verify they have directly supervised your eLearning assessment(s). For Flag approved courses, please refer to the 'approvals' section below for further information.
