Shipping companies and owners need to be just as wary of cybersecurity as any other industry, with the increased digitalisation aboard vessels posing a significant threat.
We’re living in an increasingly connected world and as such these companies and owners are now treating their vessels like a mobile office, performing the most mundane of tasks and business-related actvities either on board or remotely via the HQ.
However, this opens up a whole host of vulnerabilities for the vessel and insider threat is a major cause for concern for the industry and something that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Seafarers bring an average of three communication devices on board ships, but insecure personal devices, be it smartphones, laptops or tablets, can add additional vulnerability to the vessel’s IT system which is open not separated from the vessel’s business LAN.
Having said that, cybersecurity is not just about preventing hackers from gaining access to a ship’s system. It’s also about ensuring that the IT systems in place are robust and resilient and that appropriate reversionary modes are available in the event of a compromise.
The threat landscape is constantly evolving and with this in mind, ship management companies and operators need to approach cybersecurity in a holistic way.
NSSLGlobal offers a number of solutions that provide cybersecurity assurance to support your road to digitalisaton, freeing up your time to focus on the vessel priorities that are core to your business.

Your customers rely on you to move their goods around the globe and deliver them in condition and on time. This is why you need to know the exact status of every vessel at any given time, as nowadays, decisions are a joint bridge to office effort.
These decisions on finding the quickest, safest, and most economical routes to avoid unnecessary cost or delays, or to plan ahead for maintenance when required, are supported by systems that are increasingly optimised by real-time communications.
We integrate our managed communications solutions with your vessel monitoring systems so you can extend your office network to your vessels. NSSLGlobal provides end-to-end solutions for maritime customers, and we handle the installation and maintenance ourselves. Our VSAT expertise and integrated support is optimal for maintaining your operations that depend on real-time communications.
By choosing NSSLGlobal, not only will you be safe in the hands of our maritime knowledge, appreciation of ship operations and technical expertise, but you will also benefit from our complimentary services of IP technical management essential for maritime broadband services.
NSSLGlobal has developed robust solutions designed to work under the roughest of circumstances. Installation and maintenance is done by our own qualified and certified staff. Ongoing support is delivered by our helpdesk manned by trained and skilled engineers; all in all delivering end-to-end solutions with highest uptime and lowest total cost of ownership.
Whether a low or high bandwidth package with multiple Wi-Fi points throughout the ship is chosen, NSSLGlobal can help.
Installation & Maintenance
We understand that without accurate forecasts and ongoing analysis of the actual operations, your vessel is inoperable and not making money. Robust systems and a supplier securing a high first-time fix rate are of the essence to keep operations running.
Not only do we service equipment supplied by NSSLGlobal, we also offer electronic maintenance contracts to incorporate navigational and commercial communications equipment; providing a single point of contact for marine based customers. We provide bespoke maintenance contracts to compliment any or all of our service provision, making sure the customer is always satisfied.
Where a ship has the facility of voice and data communications onboard, for the purpose of the efficient operation of a ship’s business, it is now mandatory to ensure that those same facilities are accessible for crew use, either without charge to the crew or via a crew charging facility.
No matter which VSAT IP@SEA bandwidth package you chose we can ensure your company can continue running whilst adhering to the MLC-2006 regulations for the welfare of your staff.
VSAT IP@SEA and Cruise-IP customers can also enjoy NSSLGlobal’s low cost toll-quality premium voice service from just $0.25 per minute. Our service is distinguished from our competitors as we provide an additional 32 kbps dedicated CIR for each voice line over the satellite and this then terminates over the US PSTN rather than over the Internet. When calling the vessel we also offer over 50 different country codes to allow local calling rates to the vessel. Lastly we can split the phone lines into operational and crew lines if required which allows the crew to utilise NSSLGlobal’s crew cards at our special crew rates.
