PM: The Cyber Challenge


During Posidonia 2016 (on Wednesday June 8, at the Metropolitan Hotel), Digital Ship will be hosting a half-day Maritime Cyber Risk & Safety Forum.

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.

Speakers include:
Ronald Spithout, President, Inmarsat Maritime
Ghani Behloul, CMO, Marlink
Martin Kits van Heyningen
, CEO, KVH Industries, Inc.
Phil Tinsley, Maritime Security Manager, BIMCO
Dr Phillip Belcher, Marine Director, INTERTANKO

1555 - Panel 1: The Maritime Cyber Satcom Summit
How are developments in Maritime Satcoms 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:
Martin Jarrold, Chief, International Programme Development, Global VSAT Forum (GVF)
Panellists include:
Ronald Spithout, President, Inmarsat Maritime
Ghani Behloul, CMO, Marlink
Martin Kits van Heyningen, CEO, KVH Industries, Inc.

1640 - Panel 2: How is 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?
