At the Posidonia trade fair, classification society DNV presented Minerva Gas and Minerva Marine with ISO/IEC 27001 certification for their information security management system.

ISO/IEC 27001 is perhaps the most recognized international standard for information security management systems. It assists organizations to establish information security management policies and objectives and to understand implement and manage controls and set clear objectives for improving information security.

As automation and digital technologies make rapid advances in shipping, the cyber security protection becomes not only a requirement but also a business need with the aim of safeguarding the safety and the efficiency of our operations. This is why Minerva has invested in establishing and implementing an ISO 27001 certified and compliant information security management system and we would like to thank DNV for its support throughout this journey,” said Mr Sokratis Dimakopoulos, COO at Minerva Gas Inc. and Minerva Marine Inc.

“We are very pleased to award Minerva Gas and Minerva Marine this certification,” said Ioannis Chiotopoulos, SVP & Regional Manager, DNV Maritime. “It is a milestone that reflects their commitment to safeguarding sensitive data and ensuring the highest standards of data security and this comprehensive approach will undoubtedly enable them to make the most of the management systems they have in place. In addition, it showcases how cooperation between the experts within DNV’s different business areas can deliver outstanding integrated services for our customers.”
