  1. Compliance with IMO requirements

The IMO circular MSC-FAL.1/Circ.3 on the Guidelines on Cyber Security Onboard Ships identifies cyber risk management as critical to the safety and security and environment protection. The Guidelines provide high-level recommendations on maritime cyber risk management to safeguard shipping from current and emerging cyberthreats and vulnerabilities. The Guidelines also include functional elements that support effective cyber risk management.

IMO Resolution MSC.428(98) requested that an approved safety management system should take into account cyber risk management in accordance with the objectives and functional requirements of the ISM Code, and cyber risks be addressed in the safety management systems no later than the first annual verification of the company’s Document of Compliance after 1 January 2021.
