Paul R. Walters, Director, Cyber Service Delivery, Cybersecurity & Software Integrity, ABS, says that cyber hygiene is critical and calls for actions towards cyber awareness. It is not a matter if you will ever be hacked but when, Mr. Walters notes, therefore cybersecurity must be a priority and company officers should recognize a series of risk factors and conditions for control.
Paul R. Walters, Assistant Chief Engineer, ABS, explained why ‘Smart Ships Demands Quality Software and Cyber Security’ during the 2016 SMART4SEA Forum. He highlighted the need to improve software quality onboard marine and offshore assets. He addressed cybersecurity and Cybersafety pointing to four key elements for achieving safety and security objectives: traceability, documentation, transparency and verification. He explained that these requirements are self-evident and continue beyond the initial build into the maintenance phase.
