SHI, Korean Register to bolster cyber security capabilities of smart ships

first_img“Through this partnership and joint research with Samsung Heavy Industries, we will strengthen our ship cyber security certification and our technical service capabilities. KR will also continue to increase its cyber security technology leadership in the global maritime market using world-class construction technology through our cooperation and close working with shipyards,” said Kim Dae-heon, head of KR’s Digital Technology Center. Image by Korean Register In the lead up to this date, KR and SHI will work together to enhance and support the application and verification of ship cyber security rules. “We expect to considerably increase the security capabilities of smart ships through our joint research with KR, which is renowned for its cyber security certification technology. In addition, we will continue to deliver ships with the very latest world-class cyber security capabilities for our customers,” Shim Yong-rae, head of the Shipbuilding and Marine Research Institute of SHI, added. The duo expects that by combining KR’s classification capability and the smart ship technology of Samsung Heavy Industries, the resulting synergies will be extremely beneficial to the shipping industry moving forward. Cyber security risk management is expected to be significantly strengthened in 2021 when the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Maritime Safety Committee’s resolution “Cyber Risk Management in Safety Management System (MSC.428 (98))” comes into effect. center_img In addition, they will study technologies that can respond to cyber threats faced by ships, by diagnosing ship cyber security vulnerabilities using the cybersecurity testbeds built by SHI. Under the MOU, the two organizations have agreed to evaluate the construction and design safety of cyber security networks applicable to new ships. Korean Register (KR) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with compatriot Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) to conduct a joint study on “Ship Cyber Security Network Construction and Design Safety Evaluation” at the Marine Engineering Research Center of SHI. KR established a maritime cyber security management certification system in 2018. The maritime cyber security management certification system encompasses the international security standards (ISO 27001 and IEC 62443), the maritime cyber security guidelines of the IMO and the shipping association BIMCO.last_img read more

Adelaide site to receive multimillion dollar overhaul

first_imgAustralia’s richest Greek Con Makris has unveiled plans to redevelop his site at O’Connell St, North Adelaide following previous failed attempts. Makris’ company, the Makris Group, will wholly fund the $200 million project, which will include a high market hotel, luxury apartments, a shopping complex, the first Australian built Whole Foods Market (an America grocery chain), as well as cafes and restaurants. Makris told Neos Kosmos he expects construction to begin by the second half of 2015, in an area he likens to Kolonaki and Syntagma in Athens.“(South Australia premier) Jay Weatherill gave his blessing, the mayor of Adelaide gave his blessing, the shopkeepers association has given its blessing, every department here in South Australia is supporting it because Adelaide needs something like this. North Adelaide is the Kolonaki of Adelaide, it’s where all the rich people live and it’s less than one kilometre from the centre of the CBD, across King William Road. The same way Syntagma is in Greece, where you travel down Kolonaki, it’s similar to that.”The site, which historically housed furniture store Le Cornu until 1989, has been an empty lot since. Makris purchased it in 2001, with plans to develop it in 2008 shelved due to the onset of the global financial crisis (GFC). “We had approval back in 2008 which was different to this. Back then we couldn’t build more than five storeys, we had approval for only five, and I mean it was a blessing that we didn’t build because now we have about 16 floors.”“It would have been stupid for us to build if we couldn’t sell apartments (because of the GFC) so we didn’t go ahead with it and we waited for an opportunity. Now under the new rules of the state government here, we can build at any height provided we satisfy the government, and we have done that.”He estimates construction will create 700 jobs, with a further 700 for the service and maintenance of the complex, which he hopes will add to his legacy in his native state.“It’s my dream! I want to leave a legacy in South Australia. I have so many properties around all of Australia and I want to leave something here, because I came here as a 16-year-old and I became the most successful businessman.”“It will change North Adelaide … O’Connell Street used to be the number one street in South Australia, but in the past 10 years it has spiralled downward. By doing this, the mayor came out and said the council will fix everything, the pavers for the streets, more trees, and he urged people with other properties in the area to redevelop.”With final approvals set to be formalised, Makris is confident there won’t be any issues involved with its development, including through the public consultation period. “Well, they had it in the newspaper and 85 per cent of people are supporting it. I mean when you see the premier on television supporting it and the mayor supporting it, who’s left?”The project coincides with the company’s $50 million extension of Gilles Plains Shopping Centre in Adelaide’s north-east.
