Samsung Heavy Industries gets cyber approval for ship designs from KR

On September 6, KR has awarded an Approval in Principle (AIP) to Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) for ‘design and test procedures for implementing cyber resilience of ship and onboard systems based on IACS UR E26 and E27’.

Since last October, KR has been working with SHI to develop a design and validation methodology to implement UR E26 and E27 based network resilience. This partnership was established to proactively meet the mandatory IACS guidelines.

This AIP award recognizes the successful joint development collaboration between KR and SHI. KR provided technical advice to SHI on technologies for the application of cyber resilience to ships, including security features and network design for ship operating systems, and contributed to ensuring that cyber resilience is applied to the underlying technologies of ships for SHI.

KR indicated “it will continue to strengthen our technology and certification capability for ship cyber resilience with the goal of providing a higher level of service to our customers.”

“It is expected that the security of ships built by Samsung Heavy Industries will be further improved by the certification, which includes the security application technology for the cyber resilience of the ship’s basic system as well as the KR registered ships, the leading marine digital technology in the shipbuilding industry,” said Samsung Heavy Industries.

Since 2018, KR has been providing company and ship certification services, type approval and maritime cybersecurity technical services, as well as online and offline training programs to strengthen the cybersecurity capabilities of maritime industry employees.
