The cyber threat is growing across all sectors, and in this information era of the connected ship, and with the shipping sector’s increasing reliance on technology and remote monitoring, maritime cyber security is cyber preparedness. Are we witnessing a new security paradigm, where the focus is on prevention rather than simply relying on reaction? Ship operators need to be confident that their procedures can deal with ever bigger and more sophisticated cyber-attacks and that they are developing a safe, dependable, cyber capability in shipping.

This focused Digital Ship Maritime Cyber Resilience Forum will take place at The Hilton, Rotterdam on Tuesday, 31st January 2017 and will cover 5 key sessions:

  • Facing the Cyber Threat: An Overview of Cyber Challenges and Impact on the Maritime Sector
  • New Developments in Maritime Cyber Regulations and Guidelines
  • Cyber Risks: Risk Identification, Mitigation and Response
  • Pan-Industry Platforms and Collaboration to Combat Cyber Challenges – Lessons for Maritime?
  • End User Viewpoint: Are We Cyber Ready? Conclusions and Action
