Five new ocean carriers have joined the Digital Container Shipping Association (DCSA) including CMA CGM, Evergreen, Hyundai Merchant Marine, ZIM, and Yang Ming.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Joining the existing members, which includes Maersk, Hapag-Lloyd, Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and Ocean Network Express (ONE), the DCSA will continue to push for standardisation in the shipping industry.

“We are thrilled to have additional members joining the DCSA on our journey to drive standardisation and interoperability in the industry, with CMA CGM joining as a founding member. It is critical for our success that the standards developed will be implemented, and the commitment and engagement of many container shipping lines is therefore crucial,” said Thomas Bagge, CEO of Digital Container Shipping Association.

From July 1, 2019, Henning Schleyerbach will take on the role as the chief operating officer of DCSA. Mr  Schleyerbach comes from the position of senior director customer relationship management at Hapag-Lloyd and will work alongside Mr Bagge on the development of standards for the industry.

“CMA CGM is always looking for best practices and standards to support the innovation and digitial strategy of the company. Being a founding member will enable us to work together on setting the standards for digitisation of the entire industry,” said Rajesh Krishnamurthy, executive vice president IT & Transformations, CMA CGM.

“Digitisation is not only right but also the only path to follow for all of the stakeholders in the shipping industry. Hyundai Merchant Marine will cooperate with colleague liners very closely to find out the best route for greeting the upcoming digital era. We strongly believe in that the collective intelligence makes the better outcomes,” said Kyungin Jung, senior vice president, CIO of Hyundai Merchant Marine.{/mprestriction}

  • DCSA publishes implementation guide for IMO cybersecurity mandate

    The Digital Container Shipping Association (DCSA), a neutral, non-profit group established to further digitalisation of container shipping through technology standards, in conjunction with its nine member carriers, has published the DCSA cybersecurity implementation guide. The guide aims to facilitate vessel readiness for the IMO Resolution MSC.428(98) on Maritime Cyber Risk Management in Safety Management Systems.

    The best practices outlined by DCSA provide all shipping companies with a common language and a manageable, task-based approach for meeting the IMO’s January 2021 implementation timeframe.

    The DCSA cybersecurity guide, DCSA Implementation Guide for Cyber Security on Vessels, can be freely downloaded from the DCSA website. The guide aligns with existing BIMCO and NIST (US National Institute of Standards and Technology) cyber risk management frameworks, enabling shipowners to effectively incorporate cyber risk management into their existing Safety Management Systems (SMS). The DCSA guide gives shipowners the tools they need to help designated technical crew members mitigate the risk of cyber attack, or contain damage (fail safe) and recover in the event of an attack.

    “As shipping catches up with other industries such as banking and telco in terms of digitisation, the need for cyber risk management becomes an imperative,” said Thomas Bagge, CEO, DCSA. “Due to the global economic dependence on shipping and the complex interconnectedness of shipping logistics, cyber attacks such as malware, denial of service, and system hacks can not only disrupt one carrier’s revenue stream, they can have a significant impact on the global economy. As a neutral digital standards organisation, DCSA is uniquely positioned to help vessel owners mitigate the increasing risk of cyberattack on their ships, and in turn, on the industry at large.”

    The DCSA cybersecurity implementation guide breaks down the BIMCO framework into themes and maps these themes to the controls that underpin the NIST functional elements: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover. DCSA provides non-technical explanations and specific actions to be taken to address each NIST element in accordance with a company’s level of cyber maturity within each BIMCO theme. Following DCSA guidance will provide vessel owners with a catalogue of cyber security safeguards aligned with each vulnerability identified during risk assessment, together with notes explaining any residual risk.

    Jakob Larsen, head of maritime safety & security for BIMCO said, “The DCSA implementation guidance provides a thorough and refreshing deep dive into the challenge of how to implement cyber risk management in a shipowner company. Initially thought of as a tool for container carriers, the guidance can also inspire the thinking in other shipping sectors as well as the ongoing update of the major shipping associations’ benchmark document ‘Guidelines on Cyber Risk Management Onboard Ships’.”
