SmartShip is proud to be one of the supporters for the 3rd International CyberSecurity event for Maritime - Oil & Gas - Energy in the Eastern Mediterranean.

As shipping sector is an interesting and yet sensitive target for cyber-attacks, the need has arisen to prioritize cyber security in the maritime sector. It is proven that 90% of global trade is transported by merchant ships, increasingly dependent on digital and operational technology, coupled with the vast network of service providers, while port management also plays a central role in the supply chain of the globalized market and real impact in the daily lives of most of the world's population.

Cybersecurity in the Oil & Gas industry is a top priority for Upstream, Midstream and Downstream functions. From wells to terminals & fuel stations, throughout the full value chain, a huge attack surface is created which could lead to economic or life losses up to very serious environmental incidents.

Cyber Security in the energy sector is a major concern. From conventional or renewable production, transportation, storage and distribution, energy is inarguably one of the most critical assets in modern society. It is all about its stability and prosperity.

Some of the topics to be discussed are i) EU CyberSecurity strategy; ii) CyberSecurity information sharing & collaboration; iii) CyberSecurity awareness, training, exercising, guidance; iv) CyberSecurity, business intelligence, and data analytics; v) Cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things and vi) CyberSecurity and artificial intelligence (AI).
