ClassNK establishes cross-sectional cybersecurity team

ClassNK has established a cross-sectional cybersecurity project team made up of ship and security experts of the Society in order to accelerate its cybersecurity service in response to the expanding needs of clients.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Cybersecurity for ships is entering a practical stage, including the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) resolution encouraging administrations to ensure that cyber risks are appropriately addressed in existing safety management systems no later than the first annual verification of the company’s Document of Compliance after January 1, 2021. At the same time, consideration of more high-level countermeasures envisaging the future of autonomous ships is also required of the industry.

To date, ClassNK has continued developing its basic approach and various related guidelines in order to support the industry with cybersecurity as shown below.

  • • ClassNK Cyber Security Approach (February 2019)
  • • Guidelines for Designing Cyber Security Onboard Ships (February)
  • • Cyber Security Management System for Ships (March)
  • • Guidelines for Software Security (June)

To efficiently and swiftly carry out certification services based on these standards, ClassNK established its cross-sectional cybersecurity project team made up of ship and security experts of the Society (Team leader: senior executive vice president Hiroaki Sakashita). The team will enable the Society to provide better and faster cybersecurity services in response to the expanding needs of clients including cybersecurity class notation for ships, ship/company management system certification and more.

The Cyber Security Project Team is handled by the Maritime Education and Training Certification Team at ClassNK. {/mprestriction}
