Jan 22, 2024 HD Hyundai Marine Solution, a company for HD Hyundai's shipbuilding industry comprehensive solution, will seek to advance its ship cybersecurity solution. 


On January 22nd (Monday), the company announced signing an MOU to collaborate on the development of ship cybersecurity solutions and services with AhnLab, South Korea's leading unified security company, and Paessler AG, a global network monitoring solution company. 


In order to ensure a ship's safe operation, the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) has recently made it mandatory for all shipbuilding contracts signed after July this year to guarantee cyber resilience to reduce incidents caused by disruptions or damage to operational technology and systems of the ship. 


The threat of external cyberattacks continues to grow as the various systems within the ship have become integrated and digitalized recently. In addition, the importance of cybersecurity solutions is emphasized even further for autonomous navigation and remote navigation control. 


Accordingly, HD Hyundai Marine Solution released the ship cybersecurity solution brand Hi-Secure which satisfied the IACS cyber resilience rule (UR E26) last year and applied the solution to 1 LNG Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) vessel that is being built. 


An official of the company stated that there are "plans to expand our presence in the ship cybersecurity market by providing security solutions that can be trusted through collaborating with Korea's AhnLab and Germany's Paessler AG, the global top-tier security companies." 


HD Hyundai Marine Solution has developed and provided Integrated Smartship Solution (ISS), Integrated Smart Communication System (ISCS), Integrated Automation System (IAS), Integrated Navigation System (INS), etc., leading the digitalization of cutting-edge ship systems.
