In this week’s Bridge Watch, Dryad Global’s CEO Corey Ransom is talking cybersecurity. Did you know that attacks on the maritime industry and its infrastructure are up by 900%? It is vital that the maritime industry treat the cyber domain with a higher degree of importance to fully understand common cyber attack vectors and mitigation measures. In 2015 the average attack dwell time once a hacker had gained access to a system and before they pushed forward with an attack was 270 days. In 2023, the average attack dwell time has dropped to 4.5 days. Despite this escalation it still takes a company an average of 277 days to recover their compromised systems after a cyber attack and get their systems back, up and running and fully secured.
