ABS reports that it has issued its first notation under the ABS Guide for Cybersecurity Implementation for the Marine and Offshore Industries.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The ABS CyberSafety programme is aimed at mitigating the risk of cyber security-related conditions or incidents that could negatively affect operations.

The first notation awarded under the programme was a CS1 notation (Asset, Basic-level, Informed Cybersecurity Implementation). This involved an ABS team working with the client, reviewing and assessing its cyber security documentation and cyber security system to protect industrial control systems from a cyber security-related incident or failure on its offshore assets.

“The focus on cyber safety is increasing, and that is changing the expectations industry has for classification services,” said ABS chairman, president and CEO Christopher Wiernicki.

“ABS is ahead of the curve in tackling this fast moving challenge, creating actionable guidance and helping clients protect themselves against cyber threats.”{/mprestriction}
