Songa Shipmanagement has received certification from the Korean Register (KR) for its cybersecurity management system.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Following a comprehensive cybersecurity audit over the last six months, including 87 inspection items in 18 categories such as human management, risk management, asset management, response and recovery, KR found Songa Shipmanagement capable of responding to all kinds of cyber incidents.

The audit examined the company’s processes to ensure it meets KR’s cybersecurity certification process, established in 2018 in accordance with international security standards ISO 27001, IEC 62443, NIST framework and in line with IMO and BIMCO's cyber security guidelines.   

Songa manages and operates 23 chemical and oil tankers. Operational cybersecurity has been granted by KR for all 23 vessels.

Jeong-ki Lee, CEO, KR, said: “A robust and comprehensive cyber security response and active protection against any cyber-attack has become essential to ensure the safety of vessels and their crews and to protect organisations across the maritime industries.”

"In the future, KR will not just certify companies and vessels, we are expanding our range of related technical services to include cyber security type approval and the certification of ship IT service providers and will develop further services to meet our customers’ requirements."{/mprestriction}
