In recent years and to this day, there is a continual rise in criminal activity amongst Super & Mega Yacht clientele. The reason being, these highly expensive vessels are known as ‘soft targets’ and are becoming more and more appealing to pirates and unwelcome guests alike.
Not only are these luxury vessels and their occupants at risk from physical attacks (Kidnap, Ransom, Theft, Hijacking) but they are also prime targets for ‘Cyber-Criminals’. Majority of the time, these high-value superyachts have influential clients onboard. They are at risk of extortion through criminals gaining personal and confidential information by hacking the vessels security system.
