Witherby Connect is cyber safe

There have been several reports of cyber attacks against companies in our industry this week.

This is a relevant time to remind our customers that Witherby Connect is the safest way to access your maritime publications and flag State regulations online. Witherby Connect was developed by our in-house technical experts and was created fundamentally with cyber security in mind. Adding an additional layer of security, Witherby Connect runs within a browser sandbox, meaning it cannot interact with other files stored on the computer or network. This removes the risk of the effects of a cyber attack when using Witherby Connect. 

Witherby Connect complies with the MSC-FAL.1/Circ.3 cyber risk management policy referenced in IMO Resolution MSC.428(98). 

Practical guidance on cyber security risk management is provided in the latest edition of our Cyber Security Workbook for On Board Ship Use, published with BIMCO and International Chamber of Shipping.
