With the development of digitalization and intelligence in ships, more and more control systems, communication and navigation systems, information management systems and equipment are continuously connected to the ship network.

Due to that, the risk of ship cyber security is constantly increasing. It is the latest challenge faced by the shipping industry, ship equipment manufacturing industry, and classification society. That is why all parties are seeking solutions.

Supcon Ocean Technology (Zhejiang) Co., developed a computer monitoring and alarm system that meets the requirements of IACS URE27. The company has been committed to the R&D in ship cyber security solutions.

Meanwhile, in September this year, CCS issued its first network security firewall type approval certificate.
