Last Word: Short and punchy

We'll keep it brief

RESEARCH detected that the time people can watch training films is strictly limited and no matter how important the message, to exceed this margin would result in eyes glazing over and minds wandering.

Cyber security, you might think, is so important that people ought to stay alert so the latest offering from Pukka Films, Be Cyber Aware at Sea, is just over six minutes of loud music terse messages and entirely believable action.

Crowd funded, with some powerful sponsors, such as the Standard Club, Teekay and the CSO Alliance, the film is free for users and focuses very much on the human “firewall” and what individuals can do to avoid becoming victims of criminals or wrecking their ship of company electronic systems, through a few wrong keystrokes. Check it out at www.becyberaware.com.

It doesn’t go into the reasons for some of the biggest corporations being hacked, as they have been recently, but maybe that is for another time, and perhaps a rather longer film might be necessary.
