American Bureau of Shipping Publishes Cybersecurity Guidance

It is the first volume in the ABS CyberSafety™ series, which covers best practices in four key areas: cybersecurity, automated systems safety, data management and software assurance.

The American Bureau of Shipping has published Guidance Notes on the Application of Cybersecurity Principles to Marine and Offshore Operations, the first volume in the ABS CyberSafety™ series. It provides best practices for cybersecurity as a fundamental element of overall safety and security for the marine and offshore industries, according to ABS.

The series covers best practices in four key areas: cybersecurity, automated systems safety, data management and software assurance.

"Safety and protection are fundamental to ABS, and the Cybersecurity Guidance Note is the first step toward developing a holistic and sustainable cybersecurity strategy," said ABS Chairman, President and CEO Christopher J. Wiernicki. "As automation has permeated vessel and onshore systems, it is more critical than ever that we provide the most comprehensive guidance to help asset owners, vendors, operators, crews, and regulators develop a sustainable and measurable methodology for approaching cybersecurity and cyber-related safety concerns."

"The ABS CyberSafety™ program provides a novel approach to address cyber-enabled systems protection in an extended set of engineering processes that emphasizes human and systems safety," added ABS Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Howard Fireman. "Asset owners will be able to organize security requirements, tasks, and activities by prioritizing cyber-related work efforts based on what their organization can support and maintain, rather than as a checklist of controls."
