Cyprus Shipping Chamber - Vulnerability Management Case Study

The Cyprus Shipping Chamber, noting the increased concerns of its Members, and our industry in general, with regards to Cyber Security threats, and following the Cyber Security Case Study published in August 2017, decided to develop a new version of a cyber security document with the intention to create further awareness of the threats and provide guidance to its Members.

Given that there are already a number of available guidance documents issued from various sources, the Chamber once again decided to issue guidance in the form of a Case Study.

The Vulnerability Management Case Study was prepared to illustrate how a Member-company of the Chamber that is a Technical-Operations Manager and Crew Manager approaches the concept of vulnerability management both onboard and ashore.

This is achieved in the form of replies by the company to a number of questions posed to them. The company replies were then enhanced with general considerations and advice on cyber security.

It should be recognised that this Case Study is not an all-inclusive or exhaustive guidance or evaluation and that it will be a dynamic document which will be updated with latest developments on cyber security as they become available. Furthermore, comments to be received from readers will also be helpful to improve this document.

Any comments, feedback received from your side would be most welcome.
