DSME Gets AiP for Its Smart Ship Solution from LR

South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has received an approval in principle (AiP) from Lloyd’s Register for the DSME Smart Ship Solution (DS4®).

With the approval, the shipbuilder received the Cyber SECURE notation, confirming compliance with LR’s cyber security requirements for smart ships.

“The marine industry is far from immune to incidents of cyber-attack and security breach, and the consequences can be far reaching. The new level of connectedness presents the industry with both opportunities for improving safety, as well as introducing new areas of risk,” LR said.

DSME has been focusing its efforts on developing an appropriate cyber security governance system, working closely with SEANET to mitigate the risk of introducing vulnerabilities to cyber-attack, or other unauthorised access, as part of its plans to meet the market’s needs for cyber security in shipping.

“We aim to embed cyber security seamlessly within our Smart Ship Solution to communicate between the asset and shore office safely to maximise ship operation benefits and manage the risks presented by connectivity,” Odin Kwon, DSME Senior Executive Vice President, said.

“In connection with this initiative, we are glad to receive LR cyber security AiP which primarily assures that our smart ship system is able to provide a consistent, reliable and competitive service to our customers with minimum cyber security risk,” Kwon added.
