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 (Benaki Museum Amphitheatre), on September 27th 2017.
Please read HERE the Conference report on NetFax magazine.
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 age where 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. But 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 Annual Maritime CIO Forum Bergen will investigate how we can harness all these opportunities and will debate which are going to stick and really 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.
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.
