Cyber risks related to ship tracking using satellite communications

A recent Cybermaretique blog’s article “L’ agence spatiale européenne finance la recherche sur les risques liés aux systèmes de positionnement par satellite“(fr), mentions an ESA contract related to cyber risks and solutions to mitigate ship tracking using satellite communications. CYSEC won the bid and has more information on the press release. Olivier‘s article gives more pointers on the subject (like Rivieramm coverage) and previous incidents.

Go read Cybermaretique for all cyber risks related to the maritime world. Thanks Olivier!
