Marlink adds NORMA Cyber support to maritime cyber services

Marlink has signed a strategic agreement with the Norwegian Maritime Cyber Resilience Centre (NORMA Cyber) to strengthen its maritime cyber services.

NORMA Cyber is a joint venture between risk insurance firm Den Norske Krigsforsikring for Skib (DNK) and the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association, providing centralised cyber security services to Norwegian shipowners and other entities. Its member base consists of 420 Norwegian shipowners and operators controlling 3,400 vessels, drilling rigs and other mobile assets.

Marlink is the first vendor of its type to partner with NORMA, linking the NORMA Cyber knowledge hub with its own cyber security portfolio to improve protection for its customer base.

“Partnerships are vital to successful cyber security and our organisation is built on the belief that it is crucial to share information and collaborate to help our members and stakeholders defend against ever-evolving threats,” said Lars Benjamin Vold, Managing Director, NORMA Cyber.

“We are truly grateful to have Marlink joining as one of the very first maritime vendor members of NORMA. Our expertise is within understanding the threats that are of greatest interest to Marlink customers, and we see mutual benefit to this collaboration among all our stakeholders.”
