Maritime Masters Finalist Georgios Koligianni

Georgios has been selected as a finalist for the best masters student project selected by industry experts for the best UK Maritime Masters dissertation.

"After spending countless hours tackling my research topic named “A critical analysis of the maritime cyber-security, possible countermeasures that could be adopted from the financial and the military sector” my dissertation was shortlisted in the top five among all the maritime UK universities. I was honoured to present my findings during the Maritime Masters Finalists Reception event, which was attended by Maritime UK Patron, HRH The Princess Royal.”

"I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Dr Stavros Karamperidis who brainstormed ideas about the challenging issue of cyber-security in the maritime domain and helped me significantly in my research as no one else in my previous academic studies. I should also mention my special recognition to the academics and practitioners who participated in the interviews and the survey and helped me to investigate my research questions thoroughly."
