Kongsberg Maritime has received DNV GL’s first cyber security type approval for one of its control systems.

The K-IMS system is a core component of Kongberg’s digital ecosystem Kognifai, which was used as the pilot system to develop the new approval jointly with DNV GL.

“At Kongsberg we have been delivering solutions for remote support and data collection for many years,” said Bent Erik Bjørkli, VP Digital Performance at Kongsberg Maritime.

“Over the last few years, however, we have seen an increasing focus from our customers in the cyber security of the connected systems on their vessels. With the new type approval, we can now demonstrate the security of our systems through an independent verification process.”

DNV GL and Kongsberg combined their efforts over the last year to develop the new type approval programme for the cyber security assessment of control system components.

The Security Assessment of Control System Components, DNVGL-CP-0231 focuses on verifying both the technical reliability and cyber security of control systems.

Odd Magne Nesvåg, Head of Control Systems at DNV GL – Maritime, said: “With the new ‘Security Assessment of Control System Components’ type approval programme, we have developed a rigorous certification regime to demonstrate the cyber security capability of onboard systems.”

“By choosing this new voluntary type approval for their systems, maritime vendors now have a way to show their customers they meet a set of independently developed and verified quality standards in an area that is becoming ever more important in today’s connected maritime industry.”
