Maritime Security - securing ports, products and shipping
U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Trade & Finance in the New Era of Innovation
With the overwhelming majority of ship operators believing they don't know enough about digital transformation how can they be encouraged to innovate, find the money to invest in digital, accurately assess the risks and opportunities and enable growth with digital initiatives rather than asset plays? Furthermore, which are the key components to the new and emerging maritime ecosystem will play an important part in how shipping will look in the future?
How does shipping adapt to becoming part of the intelligent mobility ecosystem? How do we utilise technology to be more adaptable and resilient and develop a strategy for the industry that harnesses the full benefits of smart technology, incorporating the technical, legal and regulatory considerations, getting ‘smart’ right for shipping.
Building the intelligent transport system
With ships and systems becoming intelligent and increasingly complex what kind of people will shipping need in the future, in what numbers, with what skills and what motivations? Is enough emphasis being put on the way we recruit and train not just our new seafarers, but our leaders and boards too? Are we thinking big enough about the industry's future?
Breakout 1 - Cyber Security
The security of the international maritime sector has become a global priority and the session will focus on the role of the U.S Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) and it’s component agencies in ensuring the safe maritime-related movement of goods throughout the nation and overseas. The U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Customs and Border Protection are the lead agencies for DHS, and are given the mission of maritime law enforcement and regulation of international trade. Securing the global supply chain, while ensuring it functions smoothly, is essential to our national security and economic prosperity. This vital system provides the goods that feed our domestic critical infrastructures and supports our way of life. Other nations worldwide also rely upon goods transported by the global maritime supply chain system, making it a global asset that all stakeholders must collaboratively work to strengthen and protect.
This case study will focus on cyber security and cyber risk management in the maritime industry, including recent cyber incidents in the maritime industry, policy developments, liability and legal implications.
As companies undergo digital transformation technology is increasingly being purchased for the enterprise by those outside traditional IT departments. How can CIOs shape cyber resilient organisations that can withstand cyber attacks, whilst remaining flexible enough to satisfy the increasing need for data and information to be circulating freely within and between stakeholder companies?
In the wake of the WannaCry and Petya attacks which saw Maersk hit by disruption the issue of cyber resilience and security has climbed the agenda in shipping and maritime. But how should companies approach cyber, how do they manage the risk attached to it? And where do they begin?
With the very latest intelligence and data around cyber security and resilience in shipping and maritime, this panel will discuss where our challenges lie today, and answer pressing questions from the Shipping2030 audience.
