Cydome, the award-winning provider of ship-wide cybersecurity, is announcing today that it has become the first international Certification Body for Maritime Cyber Baseline. This is also supported by Cydome’s automated compliance solution making it easier for maritime companies to quickly assess their entire fleet’s cyber risk status.
This new standard has been developed by the IASME Consortium together with the RINA, the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, to raise cybersecurity standards within the maritime sector.
The baseline offers shipping companies the certification required to assert their vessels uphold the maritime cybersecurity regulation standards. The baseline includes the audit of different types of vessels, such as commercial vessels, especially cargo, passenger ferries, and yachts. It also covers crewed and autonomous vessels.
Nir Ayalon, Cydome’s CEO, said: “We’re very proud to become the first international Certification Body for Maritime Cyber Baseline – and to join the IASME consortium. This step is aligned with Cydome’s vision of providing Maritime organizations with the ability to show their cyber resilience through a quick automated process – reducing the friction, hassle, cost and time of manual audits. Getting a Maritime Cyber Baseline certification will give a strong message to the shipping companies, insurance companies and the management of the commitment to having a secure fleet – and to mitigate cyber risks.”
