Songa Shipmanagement has reached an agreement with the Korean Register (KR) for the provision of specialist cyber security technical services to its fleet of 32 ships.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}KR created a specialist Cyber Security Task Force Team to undertake cyber security research and development following the development of the KR Cyber Security Guidelines in 2016.

The new deal with Songa Shipmanagement will see the classification society deliver technical consultancy services, and assist in the creation of a management system for the cyber security of the company’s ships. KR will conduct a company-wide risk assessment and develop the new system for the vessel operator.

“KR has steadily increased its investment in R&D focused on cyber security over the years, as technology and digitalisation has increased across the industry. The society is committed to being an industry-leader in this area, and is also conducting advanced technical research on autonomous ships and ship surveys conducted using drones,” said Lee Jeong-Kie, chairman and CEO of KR.

“Our comprehensive cyber security services will protect our customers’ assets and ensure the safety of both the crew and ship at sea. KR continually looks for new ways to provide added-value services to our customers and to enhance their business operations.”{/mprestriction}
