Cyber Security for Luxury Maritime

The world of super yachts represents the epitome of luxury and exclusivity. However, the increasing reliance on digital technology and interconnected systems has made cyber security a critical concern for super yacht owners. We believe understanding the potential cyber risks your vessel, guests, crew and yourself are exposed to is crucial, and periodic assessments of potential cyber threats are essential.

The dependency on different stakeholders can introduce cyber vulnerabilities that are out of direct control of a yacht owner. We provide cyber security services in the complete luxury maritime value chain.
