Dear all,

The traditional Pita Cutting of Ammitec was held for one more year, on February 22 at “Pisina”, in Marina Zeas, Piraeus.

The atmosphere was warm and cozy, with all the guests - almost every company active in maritime I.T. and Communications, as well as many members of the I.T. departments of shipping companies, chatting around, catching up and networking.

The food and wine was plentiful, the view ideal, facilitating everyone to expand their public relations and exchange views, about the developments in our sector.

The cutting of the “pita” was followed by the lottery for the gifts that were kindly offered by the sponsors of our Association. The three lucky “flouri” winners were also awarded with exceptional dinners at Botrini’s and Pisina restaurants.

The event’s highlight was the Photobooth which made the night much more memorable and entertaining.

Digital Ship Maritime Cyber Resilience Forum Athens, Tuesday 25 April 2017, Novotel Hotel

 DSAthens17 830x110

JOIN INDUSTRY LEADERS IN ATHENS ON 25 APRIL AT DIGITAL SHIP’S MARITIME CYBER RESILIENCE FORUM

The cyber threat is growing across all sectors, and in this information era of the connected ship, and with the shipping sector's increasing reliance on technology and remote monitoring, maritime cyber security is no longer optional, but is business-critical.

But how many companies are ready to tackle the cyber challenge? And how resilient are they? Whilst the risk is real, it can be mitigated. How quickly and robustly a company can respond to this challenge will depend on how ready and determined they are, and on whether they are planning to invest in cyber preparedness. Are we witnessing a new security paradigm, where the focus is on prevention rather than simply relying on reaction?

Ship operators need to be confident that their procedures can deal with ever bigger and more sophisticated cyber-attacks and that that they are developing a safe, dependable, cyber capability in shipping.
