Build your resilience to

maritime cyber security risks

Maritime cyber security

Maritime cyber security threats are constantly evolving. Your organization’s management system largely determines outcomes such as security, safety, sustainability, satisfaction and profitability. The average cost of a single maritime cyber security incident can total over $5,000,000. The cost of attacks can in fact be astronomical.

‘Often maritime cyber security attacks happen due to a lack of awareness of personnel or a lack of basic security measures.’

Maritime cyber security management systems that are pro-active in identifying and addressing the risks are better equipped to adapt to this rapidly changing environment. A well implemented maritime cyber security management system increases the reaction time of a company to an incident by 75%, should one occur.

Here are some tough questions to consider:

  • Does your management system address the maritime cyber security concerns of your stakeholders?
  • How well does your system address risks from cyber threats to enable  a pro-active and ready system?
  • Does your system identify risks/opportunities to drive continual improvement action?
  • How is the performance of the system measured?

consulting options

We work with you on your management system so it can be used in one office, several facilities or across a global network of locations for excellent execution.

We offer three broad approaches to meet your needs and budget:

  1. Enable your team: via our tailored on-site, virtual or public classes;
  2. Share the responsibility: work with our management systems consulting team;
  3. Outsource your project: we develop your management system.

We look forward to hearing about your objectives so that we may tailor viable solutions that deliver the results you demand of your management system. Since each company’s objectives and existing systems are different, QMII will work with you to customize the maritime cyber security solution to meet your requirements and your needs.

QMII has been a pioneer in integrating quality systems into a broader business context. We never accepted the limited boundaries of being mere ISO consultants, and instead have developed maritime cyber security approaches that will help you enable your management system to:

  • Fulfill objectives and other requirements;
  • Meet external cyber security mandates;
  • Ensure corporate social responsibility; and,
  • Address risk, prevent loss and add value.


For over 30 years QMII has asked organizations to ‘Appreciate Your Management System’ and to develop it based on the “as-is” of the system; end result- a system that works.  We do not come with templates to replace your existing system. QMII consultants work with your team to assist you in adding value to your organization while also meeting the new requirements.

QMII works with your team to ensure that your organization gets a complete package, which includes motivated managers and leaders. Our maritime cyber security solutions include integration of the requirements of ISO 27001 into your existing management system. This includes addressing the IT, Physical and Human risks. In addition, QMII can also assist with end to end software solutions and the necessary IT support to ensure a stable infrastructure.
