Cydome integrates IACS E26 support

Maritime cybersecurity firm Cydome has announced the introduction of general availability of product support for the IACS E26 Unified Requirements for cyber resilience on its technology platform.

The regulation outlines stringent cyber resilience requirements that shipping companies must adhere to when designing, commissioning and operating new vessels. Cydome says it offers a range of services that can assist in manging this process.

Effective for all new builds contracted from July 2024 onwards, the IACS E26 regulation is designed to ensure safer and more secure marine operations in an increasingly connected environment. Cydome’s system can be used to automate parts of the compliance process, while also offering protection against the cyber threats facing shipping fleets.

“The maritime industry is at a pivotal moment where the integration of advanced digital technologies, facilitated by broadband connectivity from LEO services, must be matched with equally advanced cybersecurity measures,” said Nir Ayalon, CEO of Cydome.

“IACS Unified Requirements E26 and E27 represent a significant step forward in safeguarding the global shipping infrastructure and the global economy. At Cydome, we are not just supporting this initiative but dedicated to it. We are committed to providing our clients with the tools and expertise to navigate these new requirements successfully and more efficiently.”
