AMMITEC proudly supports the Digital Ship Maritime Cyber Resilience Forum Athens, Tuesday 25 April 2017, Novotel Hotel

 DSAthens17 830x110


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.
