Securing systems and data is crucial in today's globally connected world

The MSC-FAL.1/Circ.3 Guidelines on maritime cyber risk management provide high-level recommendations on maritime cyber risk management to safeguard shipping from current and emerging cyber threats and vulnerabilities and include functional elements that support effective cyber risk management. The recommendations can be incorporated into existing risk management processes and are complementary to the safety and security management practices already established by IMO.

Depth Charge is the cyber security division of OHQ Cloud. We offer a wide range of cyber security services exclusively to businesses and Government departments in the Maritime sector including:

  • Vulnerability Scanning

    Choose from Internal or External vulnerability assessments that focus on identifying known vulnerabilities that can be exploited from both within and outside your organisation.

  • Web Application and API Testing

    This is a dedicated type of simulated attack that tries to discover any possible vulnerability in the web application code, API implementation and network, but goes one step further than a Vulnerability Assessment.

  • Network Penetration Testing

    A Network Pen Test targets your network’s perimeter to identify weaknesses that could be exploited by an attacker to gain unauthorised network access.

  • Red Team Penentration Engagements

    This type of test is a direct comparison to a targeted hacker attack focusing solely on your organisation. It will not only verify your infrastructure strengths, but also highlights how your employees act in the event of a targeted attack.

  • Malware Analysis

    Post-security incident analysis/audit, determining the impact, initial infection vector, malware functionalities, data exfiltration capabilities, persistence and propagation, removal and deterministic compromise indicators.

  • Incident Response

    Following malware analysis, we work with your organisation and IT department to outline the steps required to clear the damage and protect against further similar occurrences.

  • ISO27001 Support

    Our consultants have a wealth of knowledge relating to ISO27001, SOC2 and other information security management systems. We can work with your internal and external auditors to further strengthen organisational resilience.
