Digital Ship The Maritime Cyber Resillence Forum Rotterdam

Cyber security is undoubtedly on our agenda with ever-increasing threats being proved able to disrupt our business continuity. Real life examples in the maritime industry, and related sectors including ports, terminals and the supply chain, clearly demonstrate the impact of cyber-attacks. An up-to-date insight into the cyber-threat landscape is imperative to protect our business processes and data from cyber-attacks, damage or security breaches. Ship operators need to analyse potential risks, explore the legal aspects, and incorporate cyber resilience into their daily operations in order to organise business operations to reduce cyber vulnerability.

  • Facing the Cyber Threat: An Overview of Maritime Cyber Challenges and Focus on Building Resilience
