QMII’s Maritime Cyber Security Overview training gives students an understanding of the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and how to apply the controls to prevent cyber incidents and breaches.  Understand how process-based management systems conforming to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 ensure that Information Security (infoSec) requirements are accurately determined and consistently fulfilled.

In order to effectively manage the challenges, personnel need to understand the role they can play in enabling  an effective Information Security Management System. This Maritime Cyber Security Overview introduces students to the basic cyber-hygiene needed at all levels of the system and actions to take when they detect a non-confomrity. MSC-FAL.1/Circ.3 refers to ISO 27001:2013 as one of the industry best practices that may be applied to maritime organizations to address cyber threats.

Personnel must recognize the role they play in the ISMS. This Maritime Cyber Security Overview enables students to understand the vulnerabilities in their systems, the associated risks and actions they can take to mitigate them. As a system standard, ISO/IEC 27001:2013 provides basic, agreed requirements for good management practices, in particular the process controls common to all information security management systems. However, these minimal requirements only establish a framework for exceptional organizational performance, they do not guarantee it.  QMII also offers a Maritime Cyber Security Auditor and an ISM Auditor course.
