Cyber Risk Management
Electronic systems are essential to the operation and management of numerous systems critical to the safety and security of shipping and protection of the marine environment. However, the vulnerabilities created by accessing, interconnecting or networking these systems can lead to cyber risks in many of the ships’ systems, including bridge navigation equipment, cargo handling and main propulsion and machinery.
IMO has developed SOLAS requirements for cyber risk management. The shipping industry has prepared Industry Guidelines on Cyber Security which assist in the compliance with IMO regulations. INTERTANKO has been actively involved in the development of both and will continue to play an active role in updating these guidelines to ensure that Members have the most up-to-date information to protect their tankers. INTERTANKO has also published a guide on Jamming and Spoofing guidance, the first such guidance in this area.
