ABS Advanced Solutions and Hong Kong-based Fleet Management Limited have reached an agreement to partner up on cyber security.

Under the deal, the ship manager would implement the ABS FCI Cyber Risk™ solution for its 220-vessel liquid cargo fleet, which would help the company comply with regulatory requirements.

“Working together, we will provide a comprehensive cyber security solution to assist in ensuring compliance with the International Maritime Organization (IMO), as well as additional cyber-security related guidelines and requirements—creating a safer fleet,” Russell Medeiros, Vice President, ABS Advanced Solutions, said.

“New digital technologies not only bring about considerable opportunities to the maritime industry, but also introduce potential new vulnerabilities. That’s why we are continually innovating and investing in technology to stay ahead of the curve and ensure our vessels operate to the highest safety and technical standards,” said Kishore Rajvanshy, Managing Director, Fleet Management Limited.

The IMO requires cyber security to be addressed in Safety Management Systems by January 2021; TMSA3, SIRE, BIMCO, IACS and Rightship have specified additional industry guidelines and commercial requirements. The ABS FCI Cyber Risk model supports compliance with all of these requirements.
