Cyber Security Awareness course

Together with the University of Sunderland and Stapleton International, we have developed an online Maritime Cyber Risk Awareness Course to help address an industry-wide lack of preparedness against digital threats

Modern ships and seafarers are prime targets for cyber-attacks. It has been shown that bridge systems such as GPS, ECDIS, radar and autopilot systems can be compromised by outsiders which poses a significant safety risk.  And it is not only vessel navigation that can be undermined, but control systems for ballast water, vessel stability, engines and propulsion can all be targeted by increasingly sophisticated cyber criminals.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has announced they will continue to provide the Maritime Cluster Fund (MCF) in 2019, which will support companies and individuals develop their industry skills.

Marine and maritime professionals from Singapore can apply for up to 70 per cent funding to study with MLA College.
