THE CYBER CHALLENGE: MARITIME RISK & SAFETY FORUM


During SMM 2016 (on Thursday 8 September at the Hamburg Messe), Digital Ship will be hosting its 2nd dedicated Maritime Cyber Risk & Safety Forum (from 1400-1745, followed by networking drinks).

This expert forum will look at how the industry is reacting to the advent of increased cyber threats borne out of the growing use of cloud and IoT applications, the number of devices used, and larger ships but fewer crew - meaning even more reliance on automation and remote monitoring. The Forum will discuss what policies, guidelines and best practices are already in place, and how the industry can identify, quantify and mitigate cyber risk. The Forum will also ask if there is a gulf between perception and reality, and what are the real business risks?
 
Digital Ship will bring together end users with suppliers, cyber and security experts to discuss and debate these questions during a highly interactive and focused series of panels, which will seek to address the emerging, and demanding, relationship between maritime safety and cyber security.

Speakers and panellists include:

Dr. Max Johns, Managing Director, German Shipowners Association (VDR)
Phil Tinsley, Maritime Security Manager, BIMCO
Walter Hannemann, Product Manager, Dualog
Wolfgang Roehrig, Project Officer Cyber Defence, European Defence Agency

1550 - Short Break

1605 - Panel 1: How are Developments in Maritime Satcoms and Navigation Influencing the Cyber Approach?
It has been reported that significant weaknesses have been identified in the cybersecurity of critical technology used for navigation at sea. GPS (Global Positioning System), AIS (Automatic Identification System), and ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) are all essential aids to navigation, and each has been identified as potentially vulnerable to attack.
How are these perceived increased threats influencing decisions made by companies? What strategies are being employed by those in the maritime connectivity domain to mitigate these risks, and what opportunities do these present?
Moderated by: Julián Seseña Navarro, President, Holistic Innovation Institute & Spanish Representative, Global VSAT Forum (GVF)
Panellists include:
Douglas Watson, Director - Business Unit Shipping / Maritime, Ericsson
Peter Broadhurst, Senior Vice President of Safety and Security, Inmarsat Maritime
Further panellists to be announced

1650 - Panel 2: How are IoT and Big Data Changing the Maritime Cyber Security Landscape?
Privacy is a serious concern, not just in IoT, but across all applications. With a growing trend in the maritime sector for BYOD and cloud based solutions, even when users and owners take precautions, there are even more opportunities for attacks and threats. According to CISCO there will be 50 billion connected devices by 2050. While a recent study showed that 70 percent of IoT devices contain serious vulnerabilities. There is undeniable evidence that our dependence on interconnected technology is defeating our ability to secure it.

So how is the industry adapting to these developments? What real risks do these advancements pose to the maritime community, and is there a gulf between perception and reality?
