Cyber Risk Management – Maritime Industry Requirements and Guidelines

Cyber Security Workbook for use on board ships (BIMCO / ICS)

Cyber-Security Auditing & Training ServicesIn 2017, the international Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted Resolution MSC.428(98) on the Maritime Cyber Rick Management in Safety Management Systems (SMS). The Resolution states that an approved SMS should take into account cyber risk management in accordance with the objectives and functional requirements of the ISM Code. It encourages Flag State Administrations to ensure that cyber risks are appropriately addressed in the SMS no later than the first annual verification of the company’s Document of Compliance after 1 January 2021.

Version 3 of “The Guidelines on Cyber Security Onboard Ships”, which was produced and supported by BIMCO, CLIA, ICS, INTERGARGO, INTERMANAGER, INTERTANKO, IUMI, OCIMF and WSC, provides guidance on Maritime Cyber Risk Management. While primarily aimed at addressing the safety consequences of cyber incidents on board ship, the principles and protection measures in the Guidelines are equally applicable to all organisations in the maritime industry.

These Guidelines are aligned with the IMO Resolution MSC.428(98) and the IMO’s guidelines. They provide practical recommendations on Maritime Cyber Risk Management and should be read in conjunction with this workbook.
