MPA opens maritime cybersecurity centre

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has opened a Maritime Cybersecurity Operations Centre (MSOC).

Operated by ST Engineering in its hub, MSOC will conduct 24/7 monitoring and correlate data activities across all maritime Critical Information Infrastructure (CII).

It can also analyse activities in the IT environment and detect and monitor cyber-attacks.

By detecting anomalies and threats, the centre can also respond to the cybersecurity incidents using available technology solutions.
