LR and QinetiQ team up on GasLog cyber project

Lloyd’s Register (LR) and QinetiQ have announced that they are working together on a pilot project with LNG carrier operator GasLog to explore ways of increasing the level of security on cyber-enabled ships, with tailored methodologies for LNG vessels with respect to IMO/USCG guidelines and available standards.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“At GasLog, we are constantly focused on driving safety and environmental improvements through our business as the wider LNG shipping industry continues to evolve,” said GasLog’s head of newbuilding, innovation and projects, Theo Katemidis.

“Our collaboration with LR and QinetiQ demonstrates our desire to take a lead in cyber security to further understand future vulnerabilities and ensure that we have the necessary mitigating measures in place.”

The pilot project marks the first activity in a wider collaboration on cyber security development between LR and QinetiQ, which aims to develop robust methodologies for readiness against existing and emerging standards, vulnerability and impact assessment and mitigation measures, all tailored for the maritime sector.

“Due to the rapid pace of technology development prescriptive approaches to risk management are not always suitable. Instead, a ‘total systems’ approach is required taking into account all systems on board and – critically – on shore, how they are designed and installed, how they connect, and how they will be managed,” added LR’s marine & offshore director, Nick Brown.

“Our tailored approach to cyber security takes account of these interdependencies and we are delighted to be working with GasLog who are taking an industry lead in cyber security.”{/mprestriction}
