ClassNK Consulting Service Co., Ltd. (NKCS) has just announced the launch of a Cyber security training service (e-learning), developed in cooperation with KDDI CORPORATION (KDDI) and KDDI Digital Security Inc. (KDS).

The training features:

  • The program is focusing on the maritime industries.
  • The program supports Japanese and English and provides a certificate of completion after a comprehension test. This certificate can be used for an education record of Cyber Security Management System.
  • The program is available anywhere and anytime via smart device and PC.
  • The program is certified by ClassNK in compliance with the Guidelines on Cyber Security Onboard Ships Version 3, produced and supported by BIMCO(The Baltic and International Maritime Council).

Recently, the increasing use of many solutions utilising “Big Data” and IoT technologies has brought us benefits but it has also introduced cyber risks among maritime industries. Under these circumstances, it’s an important first step towards cyber safety for those who are engaged in ship operation and other related industries to gain proper knowledge. NKCS, KDDI and KDS offer a training program combining their expertise in offshore and onshore.
