Aligning Maritime Business with IT through
Digital Technologies • Performance Management • Cyber-Security
Further to the two successful past ShipIT conferences (www.shipit.gr), netweek magazine and the Association of Maritime Managers for Information Technology and Communications (AMMITEC) present the 3rd ShipIT Conference, taking place in Athens, on September 27th 2017. ShipIT Conference is a one-day strategic event addressed to the shipping industry, analyzing Information and Communications Technologies’ (ICT) impact on the industry’s operations and business performance. The Conference is creating a unique knowledge exchange and networking platform for the maritime industry, where senior business and IT executives meet, discuss and evaluate how Digital Technologies improve both business and operational goals.
The Conference focuses on three key sessions, ie.:
• Digital transformation journey
• Performance & efficiencies
• Risk management & cyber-security

Inmarsat and AMMITEC have organized a full-day workshop at the premises of OTE Satellite NOC in Nemea, Greece.
The event was attended by more than 25 AMMITEC members from the IT departments of the largest Shipping companies in the Greek market.
Shipping is waking up to a new era, where digitalisation is creating increased opportunity for development and innovation. With this in mind, Digital Ship is excited to be heading back to Japan to hold the next in our series of highly respected Maritime CIO Forums, where the focus will be on how to drive these opportunities, and how to address the challenges and questions these advances in technology are posing to our industry.
Through three key sessions, we will ask how the industry is responding to change and investigate what technology and digital transformation can do for us.
Digitalisation is re-shaping the world and creating increased opportunity for development and innovation. Revolutionary concepts plus the evolution and advancement of existing platforms are providing unparalleled growth opportunities for shipping and related transport and supply chain infrastructure. However, achieving digital success requires knowledge and understanding, and an ability to drive your company's digital thinking and transformation rather than be driven by it.
Digital Ship's 4th Annual Maritime CIO Forum Rotterdam will investigate how we can harness all these opportunities and will debate which are going to stick and make a difference. We will ask how can we identify the real digital legacy in front of us and truly re-define digitalisation in maritime and transport.
This high-level Forum will look at issues in digital transformation and innovation in shipping, and this year – owing to the strategic location of Rotterdam – we will place an additional emphasis on the digital supply chain and logistics market, and integration with maritime transportation.
Digital Ship is delighted to be returning to the shores of Singapore in October to host the 11th Annual Maritime CIO Forum Singapore where we will look at issues in digital transformation and innovation in shipping.
This year, owing to the strategic location of Singapore, we will place an additional emphasis on the digital supply chain and logistics market, and integration with maritime transportation.
Join the debate, meet with industry professionals and keep up with the latest trends, ideas and innovations for your business. With an expected audience of up to 180 of the most senior maritime executives, this event is not to be missed. Save the date of 4 October in your diary today.
Through four key sessions and interactive panel discussions, we will ask how the industry is responding to change and investigate what technology and digital transformation can do for us.
In this information era of the connected ship, the cyber threat is growing across all sectors. With the shipping industry's increasing reliance on technology and remote monitoring, maritime cyber security is no longer optional, but is business-critical.
How many companies are ready to tackle the cyber challenge? And how resilient are they? Whilst the risk is real, it can be mitigated, and 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.
Following the tradition of the past years, AMMITEC as a non-profit organization supports the efforts of NGO’s in Greece to offer a helping hand to the less fortunate.
This year we made a monetary donation to the following charitable organizations hoping that it will make the difference in lives of those in need.
This is only made possible through our members’ and sponsors’ ongoing support, thanks to which we are in a position to help people less privileged.
The Association of Maritime Managers in Information Technology & Communications (AMMITEC) has published cyber security guidance to increase awareness in shipping. The Greece-based association created a team of IT and communications professionals to produce the Cyber Security Awareness document. This online document provides general information and guidance on cyber security to shipowners, operators and managers. It highlights the risk to electronic navigation and radar bridge systems of cyber attacks, and provides guidelines on how to improve email security and reduce the risks from removable media. The document also has a section on social engineering and social media.
As Shore and Satellite Communications continuously evolve over time, Internet access is a feature available to most vessels of our fleets and all office staff. Nowadays, more and more core ships’ & office systems are networked together and connected to the public Internet.
- Bridge Navigation
- Propulsion and machinery management
- Power control
- Ships Security
- Cargo Management Systems
- Crew Welfare (Crew Lan, Wi-Fi hotspots, Internet browsing etc.)
- Crew personal mobile devices connected to ship’s network
Although this includes many benefits, it also contains some major risks. Considering this, some major Organizations like Bimco, Clia , ICS, Intercargo and Intertanko have begun to develop Cyber Security Guidelines in order to raise awareness of the safety, security and commercial risks for shipping companies.
The Maritime Safety Committee has approved cyber risk and security guidelines put forward by Bimco and the USA in May.
