Who is responsible for cybersecurity when it comes to your superyacht? Is it your captain? Do you delegate it to your IT team on land? How about you: What’s your role in keeping your connected devices safe and secure? If only one person is responsible, you’re leaving yourself, your crew, and your yacht vulnerable. Joe Hollier, a cyber risk insurance specialist, explains why in this episode of Megayacht News Radio.
As an insurance agent, based in New Orleans, naturally Hollier understands the importance of covering risk. As he explains, cyber security requires vigilance on the part of anyone and everyone who steps onboard. Thankfully, as you’ll also learn from him, insurance policies are emerging to help protect against cyber intrusions. Regardless of whether or not you pursue obtaining a policy, though, Hollier says it’s key to create, and communicate, protocol.
