ABS Advanced Solutions (ABS) has joined forces with SecurityGate to deliver in-depth cyber risk analysis for the maritime industry.
As part of the collaboration, ABS’ FCI Cyber Risk Methodology will be integrated with the SecurityGate SaaS platform to create a dashboard.
With an instant shared view, the dashboard will illustrate the degree of cyber risk across assets, operations and critical suppliers.
ABS chairman, president and CEO Christopher Wiernicki said: “ABS is the global leader in marine and offshore cybersecurity. This partnership with SecurityGate takes us to the next level.
“No other solution makes it so straightforward for operators and owners to gain such a deep understanding of their cyber risk and the steps they can take to improve it.”
The SecurityGate software also helps pinpoint remediation efforts to showcase the return on investment of cyber risk mitigation strategies.
SecurityGate CTO Cherise Esparza said: “The SecurityGate team is excited to support ABS in scaling their unique FCI risk methodology to help maritime clients operate safely. We’re looking forward to a great year of continued teamwork.”
ABS Advanced Solutions vice-president Russ Medeiros said: “The new dashboard solution allows ABS to deliver the FCI Cyber Risk methodology more efficiently than ever before, providing clients with a comprehensive view into cyber risk management across their entire fleet over time.”
The ABS FCI Cyber Risk Methodology was developed following a research contract with the Maritime Security Center for a period of two years.
In January, ABS Advanced Solutions signed an agreement to implement the ABS FCI Cyber Risk solution for Fleet Management’s 220-vessel liquid cargo fleet.
