LR in cyber training partnership

Lloyd’s Register (LR) has announced a new partnership with AXELOS, which will see LR expand its cyber awareness training options with the addition of the AXELOS RESILIA Frontline training package.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“Cyber attackers target people not systems,” said JP Cavanna, group head of cyber security business development at LR.

“Any organisation’s ability to mitigate and better manage their cyber risks must include ‘effective’ awareness training as part of a coherent risk strategy that includes technical control management, threat assessment and vulnerability management, incident response and strong governance, risk and compliance.”

“The addition of the RESILIA Frontline cyber-awareness training to Lloyd’s Register’s cyber offering is a critical part of our mission to provide a world-class cyber risk management portfolio to our customers.”

RESILIA Frontline awareness training has been designed with information security experts and behavioural psychologists to offer story-based training designed to develop and sustain more resilient behaviours across the workforce.

“Cyber attackers target people not systems, and it can only take one person to make an innocent mistake. Building a more vigilant and engaged workforce and resilient culture is critical to our ability to better manage these risks,” said Nick Wilding, general manager, cyber resilience at AXELOS.{/mprestriction}

  • EIZO secures LR type approval for maritime monitors

    As part of the European Union (EU) Recognised Organisation (RO) Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme, EIZO Corporation has been awarded type approval from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its 19 and 25.5 inch maritime monitors for an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) with radar applications, the first European certificate for electrical equipment in Japan.

    The EU RO Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme covers type approval certification on selected components and equipment for which mutually agreed technical requirements have been developed and agreed by all stakeholders in the EU RO Group, ensuring consistency for different types of equipment.

    EIZO’s current line of DuraVision ECDIS monitors (FD2603W, FDU2603WT, FDS1904, FDS1904T) were issued the certificate. These monitors are built specifically for harsh maritime conditions and are calibrated at EIZO’s own factory to meet the highly specialised requirements of ECDIS systems. EIZO offers optional optical bonding for each model which is also produced in-house.

    Kazuhide Shimura, executive operating officer, EIZO Corporation commented: “Meeting requirements for major maritime classifications such as LR is extremely important in demonstrating that our products are proven for use in harsh environments. EU RO MR ensures that EIZO continues to provide a high degree of customer assurance to system integrators and end users in the maritime market, regardless of their location.”

    Fumio Kure, LR’s general manager in Japan said: “We are proud that LR was able to issue this certificate at this time as we had to rely on remote surveying capability for the approval as surveyor attendance was hindered by COVID-19 challenges. Congratulations to EIZO for obtaining EU RO MR Type Approval certificate in addition to LR class type approval.”
