Cyber security and safety management
Cyber safety is as significant as cyber security. Both have equal potential to affect the safety of
onboard personnel, ships, and cargo. Cyber security is concerned with the protection of IT, OT and
data from unauthorised access, manipulation and disruption. Cyber safety covers the risks from
the loss of availability or integrity of safety critical data and OT.
Cyber safety incidents can arise as the result of:
• A cyber security incident, which affects the availability and integrity of OT, for example
corruption of chart data held in an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS)
• A failure occurring during software maintenance and patching
• Loss of or manipulation of external sensor data, critical for the operation of a ship. This
includes but is not limited to Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS).
Whilst the causes of a cyber safety incident may be different from a cyber security incident, an
effective response to both is based upon training and awareness of appropriate company policies
and procedures. So, this document aims to provide essential guidance on managing cyber safety
and cyber security risks.
