Owing to the increasing complexity of the digital systems of vessels as well as new safety risks for the system, crew and passengers, it is essential to establish adequate and correctly implemented cyber security barriers. Effective cyber security is built on three pillars: people, processes and technology. DNV GL has compiled and published a recommended practice (RP), which details the principles and processes that underpin effective cyber risk management. This provides an authoritative resource for operators of any ship type who wish to build their own cyber risk management system.
DNV GL also provides third-party verification of cyber security requirements throughout the newbuild project lifecycle. Based on these experiences, DNV GL has developed its first class notations covering cyber resilience. The Cyber Secure notations have three qualifiers: Basic, Advanced and “+”.
To cater for the need to make staff and crew aware of cyber security risks, DNV GL has expanded its options for training through its Maritime Academy. Courses cover cyber security from both management and technical angles and even include lessons in hacking, to give participants an insight into how cyber attackers operate.
