Regulatory Reference

BIMCO has issued Guidelines in order to address Cyber Security issues in maritime industry. Additionally USCG has developed Cyber Security Strategy and issued a number of Cyber Bulletins covering various aspects of Cyber security. Resolution MSC.428 (98) requires cyber risks to be managed and addressed by the SMS of shipping companies. Also, the UK Department of Transport has issued a Cyber Security Code of Practice for ships, aiming to provide detailed information on implementing and maintaining good cyber security practices on maritime vessels. Finally, EU Regulation 2016/679 regarding personal data protection is expected to enter into force on 25th May 2018.

As best practice, Companies have to issue a Cyber Security Policy and secure their premises, equipment /systems/procedure (on board and ashore) and employees (on board and ashore), through an effective plan managing all possible risks/threats of Cyber Technology that may influence the appropriate performance of systems/personnel and operations.
