Maritime Cyber Security and Big Data
Key areas shaping the future of shipping
This 2-day session will provide both maritime business managers and leaders with a comprehensive introduction to two of the key areas shaping the future of shipping: Cyber Security and Big Data.
Big Data has the potential to transform dramatically the way shipping companies manage both operational and commercial activities, whereas cyber security poses an increasing business risk that must be brought under control.
The course makes it clear how cyber security has to be embedded not only in the IT department, but also throughout the business processes and daily behaviour of all employees, and how business managers at all levels need to change their behavior to include cyber security. The first day is spent understanding how cyber attackers operate, as this understanding is the key to any defensive strategy, and includes a practical demonstration of how hacker-attacks are performed. It will furthermore include a detailed look at the IMO cyber security guidelines adopted in 2016 and how they should be applied in maritime companies.
As a result of attending this programme participants will: Gain an insight into cyber risks relevant for the maritime industry. Learn how to increase maritime cyber security using non-technical means. Understand the motivations of people and organisations performing cyber attacks in the maritime sector. Get the knowledge to recognice when you might be subjected to a cyber attack. Get the basic knowledge to identify which contingencies should be planned for. Learn what questions to ask when balancing cyber security against ease-of-doing business.
Maritime business managers and leaders.
