ABS has announced a new partnership with cyber software firm SecurityGate to expand the classification society’s cyber risk analysis capabilities for the maritime market.
The new collaboration integrates the ABS FCI Cyber Risk Methodology into the SecurityGate SaaS platform. The resulting dashboard provides a shared view illustrating the degree of cyber risk across assets, operations and critical suppliers.
“This partnership with SecurityGate takes us to the next level,” said Christopher J. Wiernicki, ABS Chairman, President and CEO.
“No other solution makes it so straightforward for operators and owners to gain such a deep understanding of their cyber risk and the steps they can take to improve it.”
The ABS FCI Cyber Risk Methodology was developed following a two-year research contract with the Maritime Security Center—a US Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence—led by Stevens Institute of Technology and including the US Department of Defense.
