IMO has given shipowners and managers until 2021 to incorporate cyber risk management into ship safety, giving the industry another issue to deal with.
Ships without cyber security to be detained:
Owner’s risk having ships detained if they have not included cyber security in the ISM Code safety management on ships by 1 January 2021.
Delegates discussed the ramifications of this at Riviera Maritime Media European Maritime Cyber Risk Management Summit, which is being held in association with Norton Rose Fulbright in London.
Implementation difficulties discussed:
A morning panel, which included MOL LNG Transport IT manager Pete Adsett and representatives from Lloyd’s Register and Moore Stephens, highlighted how this would be difficult to implement.
Impact of ship managers:
There were discussions from the summit floor as to what this means to shipowners and how this will impact shipmanagers. One conclusion is that port state control officers will need to be advised what to look for.
