ClassNK releases cybersecurity management system

ClassNK has released its guidelines on Cybersecurity Management System for Ships, providing guidance on ensuring, implementing, maintaining, and continuously improving the cybersecurity management system of companies and ships with the goal of safe navigation.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The guidelines include management measures regarding protection against cyber risks in not only the navigation stage, but also in the construction/design stage of ships through security by design.

The standards focus on the Information Technology (IT) and Operation Technology (OT) that support ship navigation and were created with reference to the latest IACS recommendations and ISO27001(*1) and ISO27002(2*) Information Security Management System global standards.

According to ISM Code, the handling of cyber risks within the safety management system of companies is recommended beginning in 2021, and by implementing the requirements of these standards into the management process, companies and ships are able to realise appropriate evaluation and management of cyber risks.

The Cyber Security Management System is available to download free of charge via ClassNK’s website www.classnk.com for those who have registered for the ClassNK “My Page” service.

  • Voyager PLANNING STATION gets major update

    Voyager Worldwide has announced a major upgrade to its Voyager PLANNING STATION navigation software. The new version features enhanced automation of route and passage planning, information sharing between ship and shore and new interactive guided workflow processes to reduce operational risk and streamline navigation processes.

    Voyager PLANNING STATION now automatically delivers digital and paper Notices to Mariners on board as soon as they available. Updates are transmitted via a secure link direct from Voyager Worldwide straight to the Voyager PC onboard to ensure vessels always have the latest information and prevent compliance issues.

    To complement the new fully automated update process, the size of the quarterly AVCS Admiralty Information Overlay update has been reduced by more than 85 per cent from 25MB to an average of 3MB to make ECDIS updating easier, faster and more cost-effective. The result is very simple fully automated electronic delivery of all updates and New Editions and smaller, more cost-effective data downloads that, together, remove any residual need to send physical CDs or DVDs to ships.

    “With its new levels of automation and enhanced user experience, this new version of Voyager PLANNING STATION provides comprehensive visibility of vessels against their planned routes and seamless distribution, updating and management of the data needed for e-Navigation. The result is better operational oversight that helps ship managers to safely and more efficiently manage their vessels and provides a faster, easier way for the bridge team to meet PSC and vetting requirements,” said Voyager Worldwide CEO, Kent Lee.

    In addition, a new built-in port to port routeing function enables users to select their departure and arrival port and generate a route. Routes automatically appear on either ENCs or Voyager’s integrated GIS map making it easy to refine waypoints to meet specific voyage requirements before clicking to identify and order the ENCs and other products needed for safe and compliant passage.

    For shore-based users who want to more clearly understand vessel status compared to the planned voyage, the enhanced Route sharing module now automatically uploads saved routes to Voyager FLEET INSIGHT, Voyager Worldwide’s web platform to allow ship management to monitor vessels on a 24/7 basis. Using Voyager FLEET INSIGHT, vessels can be monitored on a PC in the office as well as on the go via a tablet and smartphone.

    To provide better visibility of vessels’ compliance status and help reduce ECDIS and ENC related PSC observations and deficiencies, Voyager PLANNING STATION also now shows the details of when the ECDIS was last updated and shows when updates have not been applied. Voyager FLEET INSIGHT also enables vessels’ ENC, paper chart and publication orders to be viewed as an overlay on planned routes to enable more efficient order checking and approval and help reduce unnecessary purchasing.
