Cyber security guidelines for ships launched

BIMCO and a group of fellow shipping organisations have launched a set of guidelines which aim to help global shipping prevent cyber incidents on board vessels, which they believe could create major safety, environmental and commercial issues for the industry.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The cyber guidelines have been developed by a group of international shipping associations, comprising BIMCO, CLIA, ICS, INTERCARGO and INTERTANKO, with further support from a range of additional stakeholders.

The Guidelines on Cyber Security Onboard Ships are free to download from the BIMCO website, or via this shortlink: https://goo.gl/bAcSNQ.

“BIMCO has led the way to identify potential cyber vulnerabilities for ships – and their implications – based on the latest expert research,” explained Angus Frew, secretary general of BIMCO.

“The aim is to provide the shipping industry with clear and comprehensive information on cyber security risks to ships enabling shipowners to take measures to protect against attacks and to deal with the eventuality of cyber incidents.”

“The guidelines … should help companies take a risk-based approach to cyber security that is specific to their business and the ships they operate.”

BIMCO notes that, with cyber threats changing all the time, it will regularly update the cyber guidelines in conjunction with its partner industry associations to ensure shipping companies have the latest information available.{/mprestriction}
