E-Learning Cyber Awareness offer from SMI Member, Templar Executives

The entire maritime ecosystem has never been more critical and organisations are having to adjust almost overnight to digital ways of working and keeping their staff safe and businesses running. To enable this, there is a new urgency to bolster cyber security awareness and resiliency quickly and cost effectively.   

In recognition of the current situation, SMI Member, cyber security specialists Templar Executives, has created a very attractive e-learning offer for SMI Members. The objective of the training is to increase the cyber awareness of Member companies and reduce commercial and financial risks.

Tom Chant, Director at the SMI said:

“Reduce your risks and provide your staff with valuable ongoing knowledge with this great value training.  Something positive in challenging times.”

Course Overview

Templar Executives’ NCSC and ClassNK certified Cyber Security Awareness e-Learning for the Maritime industry aligns with the IMO’s 2021 Cyber Security Guidelines which requires maritime organisations to provide a baseline and “raise awareness on the Cyber risk”. In recognition of these challenging times and the need for greater online vigilance and education, this 45 minute course provides additional information and speed briefs  on remote/home working. 


In recognition of the importance of mobilising employees and enabling remote working urgently, SMI members are able to benefit from an up to 50% discount from our advertised pricing for the month of April. Larger organisations can also be eligible for an enterprise licence.
