SHI Gets World’s First Cyber Approval for Smart Ship Solution

Classification society ABS has granted a Certificate of CyberSafety Compliance for Samsung Heavy Industries’ (SHI) Smart Ship Solution.

As explained, the goal of SHI’s Smart Ship Solution is improving vessel efficiencies using real time data from hull and equipment sensors in collaboration with land-based technical and fleet managers.

Real-time data transfer between ship and shore facilities — to enable automated operations — presents a growing cybersecurity challenge for the marine and offshore industries, ABS said.

According to the classification society, the shipbuilder’s solution adheres to ABS Guide for Cybersecurity Implementation for the Marine and Offshore Industries and ISO 27000 series, IT Security Control Code of Practice.

“SHI Smart Ship Solution was successfully tested and evaluated for compliance with the ABS Cybersecurity Guide,” Paul R. Walters, Director of the Global ABS CyberSafety® program, said.

“ABS is pleased to be working with SHI to ensure the next generation of vessels is better equipped to address the increased level of cyber risk they will certainly face,” Walters added.

“Gaining the ABS Certificate of CyberSafety Compliance is an important first step to apply the Smart Ship Solution in the marine and offshore industries. Through the ABS/SHI Joint Development Project, SHI is proud to acquire the world’s first ship system ABS Certificate of CyberSafety Compliance,” Dong-Yeon Lee, SHI Ship and Offshore Performance Research Center Vice President, commented.

ABS said it will work with SHI on next-generation cybersecurity technology for smart ships focused on both the ship’s onboard architecture and its onshore fleet management cybersecurity architecture going forward.
