Increased levels of connectivity and reliance on more digitally-enabled systems are introducing new risks and vulnerabilities into the maritime supply chain. Addressing risk early at the individual component and equipment level can help mitigate potential negative impacts when that equipment is later integrated onboard a vessel or offshore asset. The ABS CyberSafety® Program helps equipment manufacturers identify and remedy cybersecurity vulnerabilities within risk management processes, governance and the final system itself. Ultimately, ABS approval supports your competitive edge in the supply chain marketplace by demonstrating your commitment to cybersecurity and helping future purchasers avoid disruption to their operations.
The ABS certification process applies to a range of digitally-enabled equipment and systems covering individual components all the way through the system and network level . ABS offers Product Design Assessment (PDA) and Service Provider approval, providing a comprehensive certification solution.
