ABS launches Cybersecurity Guidance Note

ABS reports that it has published Guidance Notes on the Application of Cybersecurity Principles to Marine and Offshore Operations, the first volume in the society’s new CyberSafety series, with best practices for maintaining digital defences in maritime and offshore operations.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The series of Guidance Notes, Guides with Optional Notations, Advisory Notes and related Publications will comprise a risk-based management programme for asset owners to apply best practice approaches to four key cyber areas: cybersecurity, automated systems safety, data management and software assurance.

This will include a defined, scalable approach that can be applied to a single component up to a multi-system group of assets. The programme can also be used with industry regulatory mechanisms within or external to the marine and offshore industries.

“Safety and protection are fundamental to ABS, and the Cybersecurity Guidance Note is the first step toward developing a holistic and sustainable cybersecurity strategy,” says ABS chairman, president and CEO Christopher Wiernicki.

“As automation has permeated vessel and onshore systems, it is more critical than ever that we provide the most comprehensive guidance to help asset owners, vendors, operators, crews and regulators develop a sustainable and measurable methodology for approaching cybersecurity and cyber-related safety concerns.”{/mprestriction}
