Security for Maritime Summit 2017″
conference has been added to Research
and Markets’


Britain’s newest warship-HMS Queen Elizabeth uses vulnerable
software used by the NHS that was hacked into last May. Is your IT
system under the same roof as this carrier or NHS? If so, pls ensure you
do not miss this chance to learn the MOST WANTED technics to safeguard
your IT systems.

The make-up of a port/port system/maritime facilities and assets’ system
and its networks + complex and fast-paced operations make it an obvious
and prominent target for cyber-attacks. With the number of systems being
operated simultaneously in a port/marine & offshore terminals/maritime
facility (forming the maritime industry), it is extremely vulnerable and
the maritime industry has list cyber security threats/cyber-attacks as
the biggest security threat feared going forward.

With 90% of the world’s cargo transiting by sea, mitigating cyber threat
is critical. The impact on the maritime industry is huge if there is any
sort of cyber attack and cannot be managed!

However, despite being on the country’s most important critical
infrastructure, ports/port systems at the moment is seen as not
suited/prepared to address cyber-security challenges. An increasing
number of ports and maritime facilities have already recently
experienced a cyber-attack of some sort – either on its systems OR on
the vessels operating at its port/terminal and going forward these
attacks expected to be more frequent & dangerous.

Taking place between 11-12th October 2017, Cyber Security for Maritime
Summit 2017 will make Asia’s premier networking and learning platform
for Port Operators, Port Authorities, Maritime Authorities, Marine
Terminal Companies, Oil & Gas Companies with Offshore
Facilities/Terminals to discuss and share insightful experiences on
existing and the next-generation of cyber threats to maritime, ports and
shipping businesses.
