OSI achieves Cyber Essentials Plus certification
OSI Maritime Systems has announced that it has qualified for Cyber Essentials Plus sertification which demonstrates the Company's commitment to cyber security.
The rigorous certification process, awarded by DigitalXRAID, evaluates a candidate's Boundary Firewalls and Internet Gateways, Secure Configuration, Patch Management, Access Control, and Malware Protection. Ken Kirkpatrick, President and CEO, stated:
"We are committed to continuous improvement. Equally important to us is having a secure and trusted cyber environment for our global workgroups and customers."
Cyber Essentials offers two sertification options, Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus. The "Plus" certification enrols an independent Sertification Body to carry out the cyber security verification and which includes applying stress testing of systems through the use of external scans. Mr. Kirkpatrick added:
"In addition to the third-party validation, "Plus" adds a higher layer of achievement. OSI places great emphasis on third-party verification of its processes, systems, and products such as ECPINS - our view on cyber security is no different."
OSI's ECPINS is the only Warship Electronic Charting Display Information System (WECDIS) that meets and has been independently certified against NATO WECDIS STANAG 4564 Ed.2.
