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.
When on Monday 25th of July, a common friend announced that “Aris passed away” the first reaction was that this could not be true … Although attended, the bad news were very difficult to believe them…
Always kind, always active, always humorist, after an unequal war with cancer during the last months, Aris lost the final battle, in the age of only 57 years.
Digital Ship returns to Korea with a one day conference taking place on 25 October, during Kormarine 2017 at BEXCO in Busan, the biggest International Marine, Shipbuilding, and Offshore show in Korea.
The Maritime CIO Forum at Kormarine has been developed to address the issues and trends that technology leaders face in an increasingly changing and continuously developing business environment.
Staying ahead of the innovation curve, and with the digitalisation of the maritime sector at the core of this changing landscape, Digital Ship is pleased to be returning to Kormarine with our Maritime CIO Forum, where the focus is on how to harness opportunities, and how to address the challenges and questions which advances in technology are posing to our industry.
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.
FACE THE CYBER THREAT IN THE MARITIME INDUSTRY IN HAMBURG ON TUESDAY
“The maritime industry is still not taking cyber risk seriously enough, because there haven’t yet been any disasters or financial collapses that can be pinned down to a cyberattack. Maersk may have lost hundreds of millions, but it was an accidental victim. However, criminals and terrorists also read and learn from the news, and they understand how huge and vulnerable this industry is. They will be attacking your ships or your data systems any time now, with very serious economic consequences and possibly loss of life; and we need to be prepared before this happens.” David Nordell, Senior Vice President for Strategy, Policy and Law, Centre for Strategic Cyberspace and Security Science
Hear from David Nordell and our esteemed line-up of Speakers and Panellists on Tuesday, 10th October at the Le Meridien Hotel, Hamburg. Still time to register to attend.
