Hyundai Heavy receives U.S. cyber security certificate for tanker, says Yonhap News agency.
CSR certificate from ABS
Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., the world’s largest shipbuilder by sales, said that it has received a cyber security certificate from the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) for its very large crude carrier.
It marked the first time in the world that Hyundai Heavy received the Cyber Security Ready (CSR) for a very large crude carrier. The shipbuilder said it is set to deliver the vessel to an unidentified European shipping company later this month.
Protection for marine assets
Paul R. Walters, director of the Global ABS CyberSafety program, said this Cyber Security Ready (CSR) model is a powerful tool for protecting marine assets from various threats.
ABS is a leading global provider of classification and technical advisory services to the marine and offshore industries.
“As a global leader in marine cyber security, ABS is pleased to be working with HHI to ensure the next generation of vessels is better equipped to address the increased level of cyber risk they will certainly face,” says Walters in comments provided by Hyundai Heavy.
