Track Two:  Session 12: Maintenance and Reliabilty

Topic: Achieving IMO Cybersecurity Compliance

Floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels and other vessels utilizing shipboard control systems for navigation and downstream process control have industrial cybersecurity recommendations from the International Maritime Organization (IMO).  In 2017 the IMO released cybersecurity risk management guidelines with a suggested implementation deadline of 2021.  While the IMO cybersecurity guidelines apply to all shipboard computer systems, the purpose of this abstract is to show recommended practices for maritime downstream processing industrial control systems in order to comply with the IMO guidelines.  These IMO guidelines reference NIST guidelines of cybersecurity for Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover.  A thorough Technical Cybersecurity Risk Assessment using passive data capture technology on a maritime vessel industrial control network will be able to provide network visibility, asset inventory, a qualitative risk analysis, updated network architecture, and recommended upgrades.  This method can be used as a way for downstream maritime vessels like FPSO’s to qualify for compliance with IMO cybersecurity guidelines.
