"Ships and offshore structures are becoming more and more interconnected," said Tor Svensen, CEO DNV GL - Maritime, when taking the stage at this year's CMA (Connecticut Maritime Association) event in Stamford, CT. "In theory, all programmable components may be exposed to cyber threats, be it machinery, navigation or communication systems."
...
"This is a weak spot," said Svensen. "There are many ways something can go wrong with the systems or software - be it caused by technical or human error, or cyber criminals. According to Svensen, cyber-attacks pose an additional risk of someone with evil intent exploiting already existing vulnerabilities. The industry has seen its first cyber events, e.g. the manipulation of AIS, ECDIS and GPS data. Just last year, more than 50 cyber security incidents were detected in the Norwegian energy and oil and gas sector.
There is, however, much that can be done to improve protection against cyber-attacks.
"At DNV GL, we have always favored a risk-based approach and also advocate this to reduce cyber risks," Svensen said. He also recommended that asset owners and operators should consider cybersecurity self-assessments, third-party assessments, audits, testing and verification, and suggested that such requirements could also be implemented into future regulations.
...
"If regulating authorities such as the USCG define cybersecurity requirements, DNV GL is well positioned to contribute to regulations, and to establish rules, class notations, recommended practices and guidelines," Svensen promised.

Europe has a major role to play in driving the maritime industry forward, said Tor Svensen, CEO of DNV GL - Maritime, in his keynote speech on innovation at the European Shipping Week in Brussels.
Svensen outlined three priority areas that will drive shipping in the decades to come: sustainability and environmentally friendly technologies, big data and connected ship solutions as well as a new safety mindset across the whole maritime industry in order to improve its safety track record.
...
Svensen applauded the European maritime industry for recognizing its responsibility to put shipping on a path towards greater sustainability. The role of class and the maritime regulatory system also had to keep up with the expectations of the general public. "Recently, there have been many global efforts and initiatives to protect the environment. But to achieve the ambitious goal of a 60 to 80 percent reduction in CO2 emissions there are still significant challenges that need to be addressed," Svensen said. He noted that European industry players were working hard to tackle these challenges, by being forerunners in innovative, greener propulsion technologies, such as battery and hybrid systems, fuel cells or LNG-fuelled engines. "As the trend is to go beyond compliance, adopting these technologies gives you a competitive advantage."
New software and big data solutions could enable the industry to implement smart maintenance strategies and increase operational efficiency. "In addition, automated systems for remote areas generate safety improvements and decision support systems can permit faster and more informed decisions by crews," Svensen said. Apart from the use of big data solutions to improve the safety track record, the industry needed to push for greater transparency in the information exchange, learn more from reported accidents and implement preventive and mitigating barriers to the risks faced, he said.
Shipping is a vital part not only of the global economy, where it forms the backbone of all global trade, but also the internal economy of the European Union. Some three quarters of imports and exports and almost 40 percent of internal dependence on maritime transport and the so-called "blue" economy in Europe adds 500 billion euros in value and nearly five and a half million jobs. Svensen emphasized that "the European Shipping Week is a great place to highlight the maritime sector's importance to the European economy" and thanked the European Community Shipowners' Associations (ECSA) for its initiative to establish this event.
