Maritime FSO and VSO Cybersecurity Training

Developed and Instructed by Experienced Maritime Cybersecurity Experts

In-person or online training course focused on cybersecurity fundamentals for Maritime Facility Security Officers (FSOs) and Vessel Security Officers (VSOs). Participants will be instructed on relevant regulatory requirements, such as those established by the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA), the US Coast Guard and the International Maritime Organization (IMO). They will be introduced to fundamental concepts of IT and operational technology (OT) cybersecurity and industry standards such as those published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the International Society of Automation (ISA) and the International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC).

Course participants will learn how to specify and commission a cyber security assessment and how to incorporate the findings into their existing facility security assessment (FSA). Likewise, they will learn how to interpret the findings from a cybersecurity assessment and use those to develop a cybersecurity plan that can be incorporated into the existing facility security plan (FSP).

"This was a great course. It has given me direction to know what is required of me as a FSO to comply with the MTSA NVIC 01-20 cyber requirements. I have a better understanding who to reach out to in my organization as this will be a team effort."

Benefits of this course:
• Students will be provided with tools and templates they can immediately apply
• Students will learn cybersecurity principles and the “jargon” needed to communicate with internal and external cybersecurity consultants
• Students will be better prepared to specify the services required to meet the intent of the regulations and standards
