Cyber Security collaboration between Alandia Insurance and Deductive Labs

The collaboration between Marine Insurance provider Alandia Insurance ( and Cyber security specialist company Deductive Labs is a strategic step in order to provide clients professional analysis, assessments and services.

Cyber Security is on everyone’s agenda

The global maritime industry is increasingly connected and dependent on cyber systems and the possibility of cyber-attack is a real and increasing threat. There are many examples of cyber security incidents and consequences of a cyber-attack are wide-ranging from hacking navigation systems to loss of cargo, damage to ship and business interruptions.

The Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) adopted Resolution MSC.428(98) on Maritime Cyber Risk Management in Safety Management Systems in June 2017. The resolution states that an approved safety management system should take cyber risk management into account in accordance with the objectives and requirements of the ISM Code.
In order to enhance processes, supply clients with proper information for strategy a priorities, Deductive Labs has developed an unique Cyber Security Assessment tool. The tool is based on established frameworks i.e. CSF NIST in combination with the maritime industry standards from Bimco. The tool can be used for a current state analysis but also as a base for establishing processes, security policies, guidelines as well as a central tool towards defined goals, ie. being prepared for the ISM Code January 2021.
