Samsung and Korean Register to improve cyber security of smart ships
The Korean Register (KR) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with compatriot Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) to conduct a joint report at SHI 's Marine Technology Research Center on "Ship cyber Security Network Construction and Design Safety Eva
Under the MOU, the two organisations have agreed to determine the reliability of information infrastructure networks related to new ships in construction and design.
Companies will review technologies capable of reacting to ships' cyber threats by diagnosing ship's cyber security security vulnerabilities using SHI 's built cyber security test beds.
The duo believes the resultant synergies to be highly advantageous for the shipping industry going forward by integrating KR 's classification capabilities with Samsung Heavy Industries' smart ship technology.
“Through this partnership and joint research with Samsung Heavy Industries, we will strengthen our ship cyber security certification and our technical service capabilities. KR will also continue to increase its cyber security technology leadership in the global maritime market using world-class construction technology through our cooperation and close working with shipyards,” said Kim Dae-heon, head of KR’s Digital Technology Center.
KR established a certification program for maritime information security management. The qualification program for marine information security administration comprises the universal safety criteria (ISO 27001 and IEC 62443), the IMO marine cyber security guidance and the BIMCO shipping organization.
