The cyber security verification has been issued according to the updated DNV GL rules and the internationally recognised standard for cyber security for bridge and navigation systems, IEC61162-460.

Translink is a system that comprises the hardware, router, and software components. Together, they ensure that data can be encrypted as it is transmitted across the network using the latest protocols of cyber security. The certificates validate that the Translink Gateway has the key components in place to ensure secure operations.

Nowadays, more than ever digitalisation offers efficient and better ways of operating and designing vessel equipment, such as integrated voyage planning including the remote update of ECDIS charts,  noted Jarle Coll Blomhoff, Group leader Cyber Safety & Security, DNV GL.

“The full compliancy with IEC61162-460 and DNV GL Cyber Secure rules takes Wärtsilä Translink to an unprecedented level of security, quality and trust,” commented Anton Karelskiy, Solution Manager, Wärtsilä Voyage.
