Israeli cyber security specialist Naval Dome and UK’s Lloyd’s Register (LR) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed at establishing standards and guidelines for maritime cyber defence.

As part of the collaboration agreement, LR will carry out a series of pilot tests using the company’s cyber security software onboard a LR-classed vessel. The Naval Dome system is the first multi-layer cyber defence solution developed specifically for maritime applications.

“The objective is to establish standards around cyber defence in the maritime space, utilising Naval Dome’s expertise. We will then test the system with our customers to make sure that it provides the requisite level of security without disruption to their systems and operations,” Ran Merkazy, Vice President – Product & Services Innovation (CTO Group), LR, said.

“The lack of guidelines and standards for creating a more secure maritime environment is the shipping industry’s Achilles’ heel. With human operator error the cause of a significant number of security breaches, the MoU we have signed with Lloyd’s Register will help create a more effective end-to-end solution for cyber defence,” Itai Sela, Chief Executive Officer, Naval Dome, said.

Using intelligence agency security technology, Naval Dome’s device blocks internal and external cyber-attacks to provide maximum protection with minimal human intervention. It integrates with existing systems and software, providing real-time cyber alerts and blocks malicious files to prevent unauthorised access to critical systems and data.
