HudsonCyber Announces the Launch of PortLogixTM
HudsonCyber, Associate member of IAPH announces the launch of PortLogixTM, its Cybersecurity Data-Driven Program Management System.
HudsonCyber, a division of HudsonAnalytix, Inc., has announced the launch of its PortLogixTM application, an innovative cybersecurity program management system specifically designed for ports, port facilities, and terminal operators.
PortLogixTM helps port stakeholders assess their cybersecurity capabilities, discover gaps, identify and prioritize solutions, benchmark progress, and demonstrate cybersecurity capability maturity.
As in many industries across the globe, cyber attacks in the maritime industry are on the rise. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the maritime industry as a whole has seen an unprecedented rise in the quantity and variety of cyber attacks. Prominent port and maritime organizations, including the International Maritime Organization (IMO), have suffered cyber attacks. Accordingly, ports, port facilities, and terminal operators are increasingly recognizing the urgency to address the challenge of cyber threats.
Cynthia Hudson, Chief Executive Officer of HudsonAnalytix, said:
“We are proud to have developed an approach that enables ports, port facilities, and terminal operators to meet the difficult cybersecurity challenges facing them today. Our PortLogixTM platform and methodology will provide them with a roadmap of recommendations to support their journey toward more sustainable cyber risk management and make informed decisions on how best to protect their valuable systems and data that underlie modern global logistics.”
PortLogixTM assists ports, port facilities, and terminal operator leaders addressing their cybersecurity challenges cost-effectively and collaboratively. As a cloud-based application, PortLogixTM engages stakeholders from across the organization to stimulate in-person or virtual cross-functional collaboration, promote hands-on analysis, and enhance communication and information sharing.
Employing a datadriven approach, it facilitates self-assessment, target profile development, progress monitoring, cybersecurity resource allocation and management, and investment planning efforts. Piloted in seven ports in the United States and the Dominican Republic, PortLogix users have employed the program to inform where and how they can most efficiently allocate precious resources, enable them to benchmark their cybersecurity capability progress over time, and help them sustain their long-term cyber risk management efforts.
