What will eventually happen with the Integration of Cyber Security in the ship’s SMS doc – The Adaptation of Cyberculture to the Maritime Industry
With the help of BIMCO, NIST, ISO 27K etc., the IMO Directive for the new ISM Code 2021 for the Integration of Cyber Security in Maritime is already in force for Ship Owners, Ship Management, Vessels, Crew & the whole Third Party.
“The emergence of new roles such as Master Captain / Navigation Officer, Designated Person Ashore (DPA), Cyber Security Officer (CySO) George Papaioannou, Head of Cyber Security for the Maritime business unit of Crontab Cyber explains signals the immediate need for new areas of responsibilities”.
Many employees or seafarers falsely believe that a cyber-attack could be just a virus growing on a USB or some malware that is transmitted as bait to a phishing email, resulting to a small impact on the company (from a short job delay to a ship recover). “Combining all above with the rapid developments who bring cyber security controls (MTS port controls, Marine Inspections etc.) into force immediately, companies may face a new reality that may put them at great financial risk and this is the ‘Virtual’ Cyber Manual (a non-responsive & non-properly accessed in SMS Doc manual)”.
For Crontab Maritime Cyber ISM Dept. the true and thorough compliance in the new Maritime Cyber regulations comes with the following integrated services ISM Code 2021 such:
• IT & OT Mapping
