CSC ini­ti­ates cy­ber se­cu­rity case study

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

The Cyprus Ship­ping Cham­ber, not­ing the in­creased con­cerns of its mem­bers, and the in­dus­try in gen­eral, with re­gards to cy­ber se­cu­rity threats, de­cided to de­velop a guide­line doc­u­ment with the in­ten­tion to cre­ate aware­ness of the threats and pro­vide guid­ance to its mem­bers and in­dus­try.

Given that there are al­ready a num­ber of avail­able guid­ance doc­u­ments is­sued from var­i­ous sources, the Cyprus Ship­ping Cham­ber de­cided to is­sue guid­ance in the form of a Case Study.

The Case Study shows a ‘real life’ snap­shot of a mem­ber­com­pany of the CSC that is a ship owner, tech­nical­op­er­a­tions man­ager, and crew man­ager and how in the early stages, they are eval­u­at­ing and im­ple­ment­ing a pro­gram of cy­ber se­cu­rity for their ships with on­line con­nec­tiv­ity. This is achieved in the form of replies by the com­pany to a num­ber of ques­tions posed to them. The com­pany replies were then en­hanced with gen­eral con­sid­er­a­tions and ad­vice on cy­ber se­cu­rity.

This first ver­sion of the Case Study is not an all-in­clu­sive or ex­haus­tive guid­ance or eval­u­a­tion and that it will be a dy­namic doc­u­ment which will be up­dated with lat­est de­vel­op­ments on cy­ber se­cu­rity as they be­come avail­able.

The com­pany strat­egy should be to keep up to date on the evolv­ing reg­u­la­tions and stan­dards, move to­ward cy­ber se­cu­rity ‘best prac­tice’, strive to cre­ate a cy­ber se­cu­rity cul­ture with in­di­vid­ual re­spon­si­bil­ity, pre­pare for in­ci­dents and cri­sis, and have a sys­tem that can im­prove over time.
