“The maritime industry is still not taking cyber risk seriously enough, because there haven’t yet been any disasters or financial collapses that can be pinned down to a cyberattack. Maersk may have lost hundreds of millions, but it was an accidental victim. However, criminals and terrorists also read and learn from the news, and they understand how huge and vulnerable this industry is. They will be attacking your ships or your data systems any time now, with very serious economic consequences and possibly loss of life; and we need to be prepared before this happens.” David Nordell, Senior Vice President for Strategy, Policy and Law, Centre for Strategic Cyberspace and Security Science

Hear from David Nordell and our esteemed line-up of Speakers and Panellists on Tuesday, 10th October at the Le Meridien Hotel, Hamburg. Still time to register to attend. In this information era of the connected ship, the cyber threat is growing across all sectors. With the shipping industry's increasing reliance on technology and remote monitoring, maritime cyber security is no longer optional, but is business-critical.


Building on the resounding success of the Maritime Cyber Resilience Forums held in Rotterdam and Athens earlier this year, Digital Ship’s Maritime Cyber Resilience Forum Hamburg will contain plenary presentations and panel discussions in four focused sessions:
1. An Overview of Maritime Cyber Challenges and Focus on Building Resilience
2. Business Planning and Cyber Preparedness
3. New Developments in Maritime Cyber Regulations and Guidelines
4. Are We Cyber Ready? The Shipping Operators’ Outlook


This 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 information sharing mechanisms
• Discuss appropriate regulation and guidelines for clearer standards throughout the industry

The event will include networking opportunities and a Post-Conference Reception on 10 October

PANSA (the Polish Air Navigation Service Provider) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) have agreed to work together with other aviation stakeholders to develop a National Airspace Strategy (NAS) for Poland.


Digital Ship is pleased to be returning to Greece for our longest running event, with the 15th Annual Digital Ship Conference & Exhibition in Athens on 1 & 2 November.

Dutch, German and Swiss representatives of shippers, freight forwarders, barge operators, inland terminals, container terminals operators and shipping lines representatives have drawn up constructive agreements to ensure a more efficient handling of inland container shipping through the whole supply chain, to and from Rotterdam. Over the coming period, these organisations will continue working in several groups on possible solutions to the bottlenecks they have identified jointly, of which some look into solutions on the very short term and others analyse the whole supply chain. The Port of Rotterdam Authority has agreed to facilitate the further elaboration of these plans in follow-up discussions. In addition, the Port Authority made €3 million available to fund initiatives from the market that could make a contribution in the short term.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) calls on the European Union to significantly strengthen economic regulation of major European airport monopolies by focusing on the interests of passengers. Enforcing greater cost-efficiency at Europe's airports will feed through into cheaper air fares, stimulate travel and enhance European competitiveness. In turn, this will support jobs and grow the economy.

Container shipping lines are expected to take an 85% share of the perishable reefer cargo market by 2021 as their supremacy over specialised reefer operators grows, according to Drewry.
