Welcome to this month’s edition of Phish & Ships, brought to you by The Be Cyber Aware at Sea campaign. It is unsettling times in our industry. The physical attacks in the Straits of Hormuz has turned the eyes of the world onto shipping and the geo-political tensions between Iran and the US. Donald Trump called off airstrikes due to the potential for mass casualties and instead turned his attention to deploying cyber-attacks. This shows the power of cyberspace, and whilst there isn’t much many of us can do about state-on-state attacks, we must remain vigilant to the potential collateral damage that can arise from such attacks.
In an ever-increasing uncertain world, our thoughts are with the seafarers out on the ocean wave and we wish you all calm seas in every sense.
