Digital Ship’s Maritime Cyber Resilience Forum

Digital Ship is excited to be back in London with the next in series of Cyber Resilience Forums on 4 December 2018.

Cyber security is high on the agenda with ever-increasing threats being proven to disrupt 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 attacks, damage or security breaches. Ship operators need to analyze potential risks, explore legal aspects, and incorporate cyber resilience into their daily operations in order to organize business operations to reduce vulnerability.

In this era of the connected ship, with developments such as the cloud, IoT, electronic data exchange in the logistic chain, electronic navigation systems, we rely increasingly on technology, which makes cyber resilience business critical. So, how do we embed this into the maritime organization, and how do we incorporate cyber security into all our systems and operations? If incidents occur, how do we respond and make the necessary contingency or recovery plans? We will also investigate regulations and guidelines to develop a safe, compliant, cyber capability in shipping.

The human factor is often cited as the weakest link. Ship operators need to increase cyber awareness both in the office and on-board. In this Forum, we will discuss ways to mobilize internal commitment, set up training and incorporate cyber awareness into daily procedures.

Building on the great success of the Maritime Cyber Resilience Forums in Rotterdam, Athens, Singapore and Hamburg over the past year, the 3 key sessions during this Digital Ship’s Maritime Cyber Resilience Forum London will contain plenary presentations and panel discussions:
