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 no longer optional, but is business-critical.
But how many companies are ready to tackle the cyber challenge? And how resilient are they? Whilst the risk is real, it can be mitigated. How quickly and robustly a company can respond to this challenge will depend on how ready and determined they are, and on whether they are planning to invest in 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 that they are developing a safe, dependable, cyber capability in shipping.
Digital Ship's Maritime Cyber Resilience Forum will bring advisors, end-users, technology providers and policy makers together, aiming to 

  • Understand, define and assess the threats and risk of maritime cyber-attack
  • Raise awareness of cyber security and risk issues and identify increased cooperation and information sharing mechanisms
  • Discuss appropriate regulation and guidelines for clearer standards throughout the industry, and with authorities

The Forum will contain plenary presentations and panel discussions in 5 focussed key sessions:
Session 1: Facing the Cyber Threat: An Overview of Maritime Cyber Challenges and Focus on Building Resilience
Session 2: New Developments in Maritime Cyber Regulations and Guidelines
Session 3: Cyber Risks: Identification, Mitigation and Response
Session 4: Pan-Industry Platforms and Collaboration to Combat Cyber Challenges - Lessons for Maritime
Session 5: Viewpoint: Are We Cyber Ready? Conclusions and Actions
