New US teaming on maritime cyber awareness


ABS Consulting and American P&I Club have joined forces to provide education, training and insurance guidance to address maritime cyber security.

A teaming with the consulting subsidiary of classification society ABS will help American Club “identify how to enhance our policies, and the offerings we need to incorporate to improve the coverage and services we offer to our members,” said Dr William Moore, director of the club’s Loss Prevention.

“Collaborating with the American Club to build education programs for their members and industry will give us a better understanding of the real challenges we are collectively facing,” commented Ian Bramson, global head of Cyber Security at ABS Group.

“This alliance enables us to develop the tools, training and services that support compliance and help ship owners and operators put protections in place to secure their vessels – from the design and construction phases through continuous operation over their service life,” he added.
