Classification Society ClassNK has released its Cyber Security Management System for Ships.

As part of the ClassNK Cyber Security Series, ClassNK regularly releases guidelines and standards that outline cyber security measures based on the recently-released ClassNK Cyber Security Approach that outlines ClassNK's basic approach to ensuring onboard cyber security for ships.

The Cyber Security Management System for Ships provides guidance on ensuring, implementing, maintaining, and continuously improving the cyber security management system of companies and ships with the goal of safe navigation. It includes 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 realize appropriate evaluation and management of cyber risks.

The Cyber Security Management System is available to download free of charge via ClassNK's website for those who have registered for the ClassNK "My Page" service.
