Description: A Primer on IMO Cyber Risk Management Guidelines - American Club & ABS - August 2020
Organizations are encouraged to address cyber risk management in safety management systems no later than the first annual verification of the company’s Document of Compliance after 1 January 2021. IMO’s Cyber Risk Management Guidelines recommend that maritime organizations begin putting into place cyber risk controls and establish cyber resiliency. The IMO resolution recommends for organizations to address cyber risks in their safety management system (SMS) no later than the first annual verification of the company’s Document of Compliance after 1 January 2021. While adopting IMO’s proactive guidelines supports effective cyber risk management practices, we recommend that organizations build a comprehensive set of cybersecurity capabilities to facilitate the appropriate levels of conformance with international standards and/or Flag and Port Administration requirements.
According to IMO, CRM is “the process of identifying, analyzing, assessing and communicating a cyber-related risk and accepting, avoiding, transferring or mitigating it to an acceptable level, considering costs and benefits of actions taken to stakeholders.”
In addition to the IMO guidelines, a joint industry group including BIMCO, CLIA, ICS, INTERCARGO, INTERMANAGER, INTERTANKO, IUMI, OCIMF and WORLD SHIPPING COUNCIL – released the in-depth Guidelines on Cyber Security Onboard Ships. This document further supplements the IMO cyber guidelines, risk assessments and defense in depth and breadth, among other elements of conformance.
