KR and Hyundai LNG Shipping sign MoU on cybersecurity research

The Korean Register and Hyundai LNG Shipping have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) agreeing to conduct joint research on the application, verification and development of Guidance for maritime cybersecurity systems.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The MoU brings together KR's maritime cybersecurity certification capability and HLS's expertise in cybersecurity technology. Under the agreement, the two companies will jointly verify cybersecurity solutions applicable to new ships and will develop risk analysis and design safety evaluations for cybersecurity systems.

The IMO’s Resolution of MSC.428(98) adopted at the 98th meeting of the Maritime Safety Committee in June 2017 will increase demand for cybersecurity risk management from 2021.  From this date, Administrations will be obliged to ensure that cyber risks are appropriately addressed in safety management systems no later than the first annual verification of the company’s Document of Compliance after 1 January 2021.

"The MOU and resulting joint research conducted with HLS will strengthen KR’s capabilities in the certification of new ships, ensuring our organisation’s position as technological industry leader in maritime cyber security sector," said Ha Tae-bum, executive vice president of KR’s R&D Division.

"HLS is pleased to sign this important MoU with KR, as a commitment to develop our proactive cyber security expertise to further support shipowners and their vessels when the new regulations come into force,” said Choi Jang-pal, head of business operation division, HLS. {/mprestriction}
