CyberTech TLV 2018
Cydome participated at CyberTech TLV 2018. Cybertech is the most significant conference and exhibition of cyber technologies outside of the United States.Cybertech Conference & Exhibition will present commercial problem solving strategies and solutions for the global cyber threat that meet the diverse challenges for a wide range of sectors: finance transportation, utilities, defense, R&D, manufacturing, telecommunication, health and government. The conference will also provide the exhibition of different innovative technologies, which are key to fighting these threats. Cydome booth received a lot of attention as the only Maritime Cybersecurity startup in the event. Cydome also was invited to this exclusive event along with other C-level executives from leading maritime companies. For about 5 hours, the Maritime companies discussed their cybersecurity issues and possible solutions. A special emphasis was given to Cydome – as the only solution provider that came to hear and offered a solution. The IT vs. OT security was discussed and Cydome presented the solution that combines IT security with OT security – and the idea that Maritime is a special case of IoT – with special condition and needs.
Cydome participated at CyberWeek 2018. CyberWeek is a large annual international cybersecurity event, hosted each year at Tel Aviv University in Israel. This conference offers a thought-provoking exchange of knowledge, methods, and ideas. The event offers diversity of panels discussion covering a range of cyber-security issues.There were many conferences suggested at CyberWeek. One of them was “Speed of light” that discussed about the movement of transportation to cyberspace. This conference included “System of systems” panel. Nir Ayalon, Founder & CEO of Cydome Security was invited to participated in “Speed of light” panel as a apeaker. The main discussion during the panel was the fact that the age of Smart Mobility brings the world of transportation into cyberspace, disrupting economics, reinventing the technologies, and redefining the infrastructures we’ve utilized for over 100 years. These rapid changes are hurtling humanity forward at an increasingly accelerating rate, into a future where cybersecurity plays a key role in ensuring the reliability, availability and safety of travel. The panel members emphasized the increasingly cyber risks in transportation industry. A few scenarios for such threats were brought up, for example, cyber-attack on a container ship middle of the ocean, disable car’s brakes, change airplane path, etc.. A major part of the panel was centered about what is the industry awareness to those raising theaters and what should be done. The experts of the panel think that raising the awareness and spreading the message are crucial part of starting the change. The panels members agreed that until a dramatic event will occur manufacturers and operators will continue ignoring the threats as long as possible as they won’t see any financial benefits of addressing them.

Cydome Security joins “Be Cyber Aware At Sea”
Cydome Security joins the Be Cyber At Sea initiative. The initiative is a global maritime and offshore industry initiative for increasing maritime threat awareness. Our company is dedicated to the Maritime Cybersecurity – and as such, we also believe that along with the right tools to detect, protect, response and mitigate – the human factor is critical. The Maritime personal should be well trained and understand the threats and how to minimize exposure. “A global maritime and offshore industry initiative to raise awareness of the increasing maritime cyber threats to international shipping, ports and offshore operations. More than 90% of world trade including the global transportation of energy is conducted by sea and our reliance on technology continues to increase, we are now very much immersed in the digital era. Ships and offshore platforms are becoming more sophisticated and in many cases crews are getting smaller. The cyber threat at sea poses significant security, safety and financial risks to shipping and offshore operations. Cyber security should be considered a board level priority issue in order to tackle this emerging threat at sea.”

Maritime companies are in danger by a bug
The consulting company IOActive publish a series of vulnerabilities found in AmosConnect 8 platform from Inmarsat. The software is used for monitor GPS and Technology systems on board, as well as providing messaging, email and web browsing services. One of the bugs was found in the login form, allowing the attacker to easily obtain the username and password from the product database. The other flaw allows the attacker to gain privileged access remotely. The latter could allow execute commands that can compromise personal and operational data, but could put in danger the navigation and general IT system. The systems are evolving and this example show how important is for maritime companies to start updating their systems and taking of the security. More info, click here.
