HudsonCyber enters cybersecurity partnership with “K” Line LNG

HudsonCyber, a subsidiary of HudsonAnalytix, has entered into a comprehensive agreement with “K” Line LNG Shipping (UK) for the implementation of its Cyber Assessment and Training Suite (CATS) and Cyber Risk Management Support Services.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} CATS combines HudsonCyber’s HACyberLogix self-assessment methodology and decision-support platform with a customised cyber awareness training programme. Following completion of a cybersecurity capability assessment workshop with staff from K-Line LNG UK and other London based subsidiaries, K-Line LNG UK leadership is using tailored HACyberLogix recommendations to coordinate cyber risk management investments and drive cybersecurity capability improvements across the business.

Building on this foundational effort, HudsonCyber experts are working with K-Line LNG leadership to design, develop, and deliver an innovative cybersecurity training programme to address K-Line LNG’s specific needs.

The primary component of HudsonCyber’s CATS is the HACyberLogix platform. The online tool combines more than 30 years of maritime risk management experience with current cybersecurity expertise, capabilities, and best practices via an intuitive electronic interface that delivers meaningful cybersecurity guidance, insights, recommendations, and trend analysis capabilities to decision-makers. Designed to foster collaboration across an organisation, HACyberLogix informs where and how shipowners and operators should best and most efficiently allocate precious resources, enables them to benchmark their cybersecurity capability progress over time, and helps them sustain their long-term cyber risk management efforts.

“CATS, through its integrated methodology, represents the first step towards efficient and sustainable cyber risk management, with training playing a key role in the process. Hudson’s facilitators moderated the assessment workshop to characterise our current cybersecurity readiness across the entire organisation and helped us to identify the existence of gaps and related cyber risks within our Safety and Security Management System. Now we continue this engagement by working together to update our Safety Management System in accordance with IMO 2021 requirements,” said Derek Darwin, head of K-Line London Cyber Working Group.

Max Bobys, vice president of HudsonCyber, stated: “Since we founded our cyber practice over five years ago, our goal for the shipping industry has always been to leverage technology to offer high value-add knowledge, expertise, and decision-support guidance to our shipping clients at a reasonable and sustainable price point. We are very excited about K-Line LNG UK’s decision to take the unique approach in fusing our cybersecurity assessment, advisory, and training capabilities across its organisation. Ultimately, the efficiencies gained will deliver measurable results over time.” {/mprestriction}
