Leonardo Adopts Cyber Countermeasures for Naval Gun

Leonardo Adopts Cyber Countermeasures for Naval Gun March 14, 2018

Leonardo announced at the 2018 Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition & Conference in Qatar, that the Company’s OTO 76/62 Super Rapid (SR) naval gun has successfully ended an extensive vulnerability assessment campaign, ensuring that it will be resilient to cyber-attacks in the future. 

As the system became increasingly more dependent on technology with continuous upgrades, the company launched a comprehensive vulnerability assessment to identify potential cyber threats and implement specific countermeasures. In addition to satisfying Leonardo’s security policies against cyber threats, the OTO 76/62 SR cyber security assessment also demonstrated that the weapon system meets a number of security requirements put forward by expert bodies, specifically the NIST SP800-53, ISO 15408 and ISO 27002 standards.
