Award-Winning FCI Cyber Risk Model
Powering our cyber security solutions is the ABS FCI Cyber Risk™ method used to measure cyber security risks associated with OT assets. This proprietary approach provides marine and offshore clients with a risk index for their OT assets, giving owners and operators an actionable strategy to reduce cyber risk onboard a vessel or offshore facility. Effectively, our cyber security solutions place the controls for responding to cyber risks back into the hands of the asset owner.
The FCI Cyber Risk method was developed following a two-year research contract with the Maritime Security Center—a U.S. Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence—led by Stevens Institute of Technology and including the U.S. Department of Defense.
