By 2020 shipping companies will be required to assess their risk exposure and develop measures to include in their Safety Management Systems to mitigate cyber threats.
The timeframe between 2020-2021 will be catalytic, as the IMO decided that no later than the annual verification of each company’s Document of Compliance, the 1st of January 2021, all shipping companies will be mandated to ensure that cyber risks are appropriately addressed in existing safety management systems (as defined in the ISM Code).
These guidelines provide recommendations and include functional elements that support effective cyber risk management. In addition, the recommendations can be included in existing risk management processes and are complementary to the safety and security management practices already established by IMO.
In direct response to the markets demand for cyber security and hassle-free data transmission to critical navigational equipment, the CT-Secure460 has been developed to meet industry standards, respecting all facets of today’s strict requirements in security.
Through the use of the CT-SECURE460, which is fully compliant with IEC61162-460, your ECDIS can securely retrieve its chart data without having to transfer any files via USB sticks or even DVD’s.
If you would like to know more on how your vessel can easily comply to the Cyber Security guidelines set out in the Resolution MSC.428(98) with CT Secure 460, please check out the CT-Secure460 product page or contact our Sales Team
