Howard Fireman, ABS’ Chief Technology Of? cer issue for the maritime sector, the root cause of these ‘accidents’ which introduce cyber threats are hauntingly familiar: carelessness among employees – the human element – is the number one cause of cyber security inci- dents, an estimated 70%.
From the ABS Guides, optional certi? - cation and Classi? cation Notations can be obtained to verify cybersecurity plans and programs for assets and facilities as well as integrated and non-integrated control sys- tems, including factors for software quality management, product design assessment and unit software systems.
“We look beyond the step-by-step approach and deliver an integrated, holistic view of systems, assets and facilities to provide con? dence for owners and operators that a multi-dimensional safety component is well- engineered and operated competently,” adds
Fireman. ABS established the ABS Cyber-
Safety laboratory earlier this year and staffed it with a team of global cyber experts to ex- pand the safety scope and verify cyber sys- tems that look beyond physical asset safety. www.marinelink.com 69
