CRIBB Cyber Security is delighted to announce that our Co-Founder and CEO, Ian Richardson, is working alongside Seatrade Cruise. ‘Seatrade Cruise Talks’ is a series of enlightening podcasts about digital growth in the cruise industry. They will reveal how technology will be used to address pre- and post-COVID challenges and more.

As part of theICEway ecosystem of companies, we have been helping clients in Maritime and Cruise for over twenty years. During that time, our team and those from our sister brands ICE and eTestware have established relationships with some of the brightest and best from within the industry. Our work has enabled us to rub shoulders with major cruise lines and trade press giants alike, and there are few in the latter group who can compare to Seatrade Cruise.

The first of these podcasts was broadcast last week, and saw Richardson talking to the Royal Caribbean Group’s Jay Schneider, SVP Digital, about how many of their efforts to augment and improve passenger experience already tie-in with precautions taken against COVID.
