Each participant receives a certificate of completion, issued by YachtCyberSafe and La Belle Classe Academy of Yacht Club de Monaco.

Innovation for this program comes from our experience and R&D in essential areas to protect yachts, owners and guests: cyber-defense (with suppliers such as Thales:, yachting industry, Navy officers, protection of family offices and UHNWI and Yacht Club de Monaco (La Belle Classe Academy).

On board your yacht

Perfect framework for training, to have an awareness session  for the crew and an advanced session for officers (+ individual coaching/discussion with the captain).

6 innovations of our training program

  1. It is not an IT training: no IT motivation required
  2. It specifically deals with yachting cybersecurity: yachts are very specific targets for cybercriminals, very diferent from other maritime targets (cargo, cruise ships…)
  3. It does not just focus on the yachts’ infrastructures, but it also aims at protecting the owners and guests (as they are the real final target for hackers)                       
  4. It covers all essentials of cybersecurity for people (captains, officers) who are responsible onboard (and do not want to turn into IT security experts)
  5. It deals with the latest trends, tactics, and actual cases of cybercrime
  6. It follows the IMO guidelines (2021), and provides the training and awareness requested by the IMO


Essentials for a yacht

(Step 1)

  • A yacht’s weak points
  • Types of attack
  • Good practices and solutions
  • Taking action in event of danger
  • IMO 2021 cybersecurity regulations

At the end of the training, you have a good understanding of cyber risk for the yacht and crew:

  • you are able to identify the weaknesses of the yacht,
  • you know the motivations of cybercriminals and how they work and think
  • you have experienced real-life cases that have enabled you to identify good and risky practices
  • you understand the obligations imposed by the IMO 2021 regulations.

Back onboard, you can start applying good practices, for yourself and the crew. You know how to act in case of emergency or danger. You are able to analyze the cyber attack surface of the yacht, first step to draw up a cyber security action plan. You have the basics to prepare the yacht’s compliance with regulations (IMO 2021) and to optimise your marine insurance contract.

How to manage a crew & suppliers : first line of cyberdefense on a yacht

(Step 2 – recommended to start with « Essentials for a yacht »)

  • Raising crew awareness of cybersecurity and sense of responsibilities
  • How to act with mobiles (smartphones, tablets) to avoid major risks
  • Good practices on board: crew and subcontractors
  • Managing cybersecurity on board: prevention, detection, reaction to danger
  • Collectively improving cybersecurity and information protection as an ongoing process

At the end of the training, you know how to integrate cyber security into your management, vis-à-vis your crew and subcontractors. Given that the majority of cyber incidents take advantage of human error, you have the keys to significantly reduce the vulnerability of the yacht, and better protect the owner and guests.

You understand why mobiles (smartphones, tablets) are a dangerous attack vector criminals love. You know how to mitigate cyber risks of mobiles onboard (professional, personal, crew, guests…) and you have advanced practices to act when back onboard.

You know how to detect signals of vulnerabilities (including among your crew and suppliers), attack preparation or incidents. You know how to ensure that good cyber practices are applied on a daily basis.

You have the elements to include in your contracts (with your contractors, suppliers, crew) to ensure that everyone is accountable and have basic safe cyber practices.
