Further to club’s previous web alert, members are advised that the second edition of The Guidelines on Cyber Security Onboard Ships has been released. A copy is attached on the right. This latest edition has been compiled by the joint industry group, which is led by BIMCO and now includes new members OCIMF and IUMI, as well as the original contributors CLIA, ICS, INTERCARGO and INTERTANKO. The advice includes information on insurance issues and how to effectively segregate networks, as well as new practical advice on managing the ship to shore interface, and how to handle cyber security during port calls and when communicating with the shore side. The chapters on ‘contingency planning’ and ‘responding to and recovering from cyber incidents’ have been rewritten to reflect the fact that the guidelines are aimed specifically at ships and the remote conditions prevailing if a ship’s defences have been breached. The edition includes a new subchapter on insurance, looking at coverage after a cyber incident as this is an important part of the risk assessment which members should take into consideration. Finally, the Annex, which explains about networks, has been rewritten based on real experience of shipowners segregating networks on their ships. These guidelines have been aligned with the recommendations given in the International Maritime Organization’s Guidelines on cyber risk management which were adopted in June 2017.
