Meeting the International Maritime Organizations Cyber Security Requirements

This lecture is to discuss the new cybersecurity requirements for the Maritime Environment. In 2017, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) released a Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) resolution that addresses Maritime Cyber Risk Management in Safety Management Systems. This resolution affirms "an approved safety management system should take into account cyber risk management in accordance with the objectives and functional requirements of the International Safety Management (ISM) Code." In 2020-2021, Peregrine Technical Solutions, LLC., provided cybersecurity support for shipboard systems and assessed the cybersecurity of the US Academic Research Fleet (ARF). There are 18 ships in the ARF operated by 14 different academic institutions, with six ships owned by the U.S. Navy. We developed a process to meet this IMO cyber security mandate on deadline. Peregrine partnered with Microsoft to assist in asset discovery, threat detection, and vulnerability analysis. In addition, Peregrine conducted 18 separate shipboard cyber assessments during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic; all ships passed an IMO cybersecurity compliance assessment. Cybersecurity support and assessment are useful to the oceanographic community, as the threats to cybersecurity are real, and will only grow in the future, as more IT / OT systems become interconnected.
