WASHINGTON, DC, April 02, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — The maritime industry presents a unique set of challenges to the cybersecurity industry which could impact the US and world economy. Maritime is a $4 trillion-dollar industry sector that places 90% of the world’s goods into commerce. Our oceans, seas, and ports are our lifeblood. Efforts to destroy, hinder, or prevent the free flow of goods and energy products would be catastrophic.

Enter Neptune Rising Maritime Cybersecurity Services LLC. With a board led by a former Commandant of the US Coast Guard that includes three retired US Navy Admirals and a former acting director of US Customs and Border Protection, Neptune Rising’s mission is to provide next level products and services allowing the immediate identification, assessment and remediation of cyber risks affecting ports and shipping. Where? The Continental US, Bermuda and UK. How? With expert teams from our cybersecurity partners ready to help you 24/7.

“Ultimately, for the maritime industry, the time is now to generate and implement a sound cyber strategy focused on the basics. Digitalization is great, but it can invite havoc to even a strong cybersecurity program,” stated Admiral James Loy (Ret.), Chairman of Neptune Rising. “Our maritime sector, and indeed our country as a whole, is facing unprecedented threats. It is time to change the cybersecurity paradigm in this sector before more damage can be done,” said Rear Admiral Jay Cohen (Ret.), Neptune Rising Director.

Neptune Rising provides a full range of services, including USCG and NIST cybersecurity framework-based vulnerability assessments, compromise assessments, and remediation services. Each of these is critical to coping with cyber risk. We also bring to the table products and solutions to make ports and ships more cyber safe and secure. With our support and the support of our partners, which include titans of the insurance industry, the security and insurability of your assets will be dramatically improved.
