NGS is specialized in management of the security, network, infrastructure and connectivity of cruise ships, terminals and satellite providers.

The management of the Cyber risk is a compliance obligation for all the maritime ecosystem: non- compliant ships cannot leave the port. The high number of passengers, IT, OT and IOT devices require specific approaches for the maritime world.

A cruise ship is a complex ecosystem consisting of thousands of interconnected devices and users, with different needs and behaviour.

Network connections are very important for ships, while being expensive, unreliable and necessary for passengers who require a similar experience of everyday use.
