Re:scam is an initiative developed by Netsafe (non-profit online safety organisation in New Zealand) aimed at helping people from becoming fraud victims by occupying the time and resources of scammers through deploying a well-educated artificially intelligent chat bot. Instead of junking or deleting a scam email, you can now forward it to Re:scam who will continue the conversation indefinitely – or until the scammer stops replying.
Re:scam can take on multiple personas, imitating real human tendencies with humour and grammatical errors, and can engage with infinite scammers at once, meaning it can continue an email conversation for as long as possible. Re:scam will turn the table on scammers by wasting their time, and ultimately damage the profits for scammers.

Industrial Cybersecurity for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses: A Practical Guide

BIMCO Led Consortium Launches Industry Guidelines on Cyber Security For Maritime Sector

Ships are increasingly using systems that rely on digitisation, integration, and automation, which calls for cyber risk management on board. As technology continues to develop, information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) onboard ships are being networked together – and more frequently connected to the internet.

This brings the greater risk of unauthorised access or malicious attacks to ships’ systems and networks. Risks may also occur from personnel accessing systems on board, for example by introducing malware via removable media.

The safety, environmental and commercial consequences of not being prepared for a cyber incident may be significant. Responding to the increased cyber threat, a group of international shipping organisations, with support from a wide range of stakeholders, have developed these guidelines, which are designed to assist companies develop resilient approaches to cyber security onboard ships.

Approaches to cyber security will be company and ship specific, but should be guided by appropriate standards and the requirements of relevant national regulations. The guidelines provide a risk-based approach to identifying and responding to cyber threats. An important aspect is that relevant personnel should have training in identifying the typical modus operandi of cyber attacks.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has developed guidelines that provide high-level recommendations on maritime cyber risk management to safeguard shipping from current and emerging cyber threats and vulnerabilities. The Guidelines on Cyber Security Onboard Ships are aligned with the IMO guidelines and provide practical recommendations on maritime cyber risk management covering both cyber security and cyber safety.

The aim of this document is to offer guidance to shipowners and operators on how to assess their operations and put in place the necessary procedures and actions to maintain the security of cyber systems onboard their ships. The guidelines are not intended to provide a basis for and should not be interpreted as calling for auditing or vetting the individual approach to cyber security taken by companies and ships.

British Retail Consortium Launches Security Toolkit

This Mar-2017 the British Retail Consortium has published a ‘cyber security toolkit’ that will provide retail businesses of all sizes with a practical, step-by-step guide to prevent and manage cyber security threats and protect the customers they serve.

The toolkit is the first of its kind, and provides retail businesses with an overview of the types of cyber threats faced by the sector, an understanding of the risks to businesses, the details of key public stakeholders (such as the Information Commissioner’s Office, the National Cyber Security Centre, and the National Crime Agency), and how to manage cyber risks effectively.


Cyber Security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS)

This is a recent guidance document about cybersecurity consideration for industrial and automation control systems.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is a non-departmental public body of the United Kingdom.  It is the body responsible for the encouragement, regulation and enforcement of workplace health, safety and welfare, and for research into occupational risks.
