The SAFETY4SEA Cyber Masterclass successfully concluded on 16th of May at the Bookcastle of the National Library at Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) attracting 240 delegates from a total of 125 organizations.
The pace of overall technology development has been unprecedentedly fast in the past few years and more developments are looming in the forthcoming years to make the smart shipping concept a reality. However, the 'smart era' escalates cyber security risks; last year shipping industry reported the first significant cyber incidents which rang the bell for this new kind of threats. Certainly, with the sheer amount of data getting generated globally across the shipping industry, cyber security is one the major issues that needs to be addressed.
The event, organized by SAFETY4SEA, brought together global experts who focused on the recent and future cyber challenges that shipping faces amid digital transformation. The presentations, which were given in two sessions, provided a comprehensive review of current cyber threats and outlook for effective ‘cyber hygiene’, examining both the theoretical framework and lessons learned from response to cyber-attacks that have been recorded.
