Cyber security for suppliers


Ensuring ship cyber security risk protection for onboard equipment, solutions and services

Managing ship cyber security risk begins long before a vessel is built. Ship owners must be assured that the connected equipment and systems that will be integrated onboard their vessels are sufficiently protected before design and construction start.

For equipment manufacturers and providers of cyber solutions and services, this means ensuring that products have been designed in accordance with the highest standards for ship cyber security. To help manufacturers and providers prove their due diligence, Bureau Veritas offers Type Approval Certificates for connected systems and onboard equipment, solutions and services.
