As on-ship and shore-based technologies develop, becoming more intricately connected, action to address the growth in maritime-cyber threat becomes essential. Shipping infrastructure is critical to modern society, transporting 90% of the world’s essential goods. Therefore, a balanced and realistic understanding of maritime cyber threat is essential to maintain business continuity. The collaboration of industry, government and academia is key for creating effective and sustainable solutions in this rapidly developing and fast moving threat landscape.

The University of Plymouth and Institute of Risk Management (IRM) invite you to the Maritime Cyber Threats and Awareness Symposium (CyMar'18 London) on 2 November 2018 at the UK Chamber of Shipping London.

This is an invitation only event free to key stakeholders and aims to bring together industry, research, and policy making to discuss the latest aspects of maritime cyber in a business context with a view to informing policy and developing real world solutions.

  • Maritime cyber threat and consequence 
  • Maritime cyber defence, policy and risk mitigation

Keynote by Lord James Arbuthnot, Chairman, Information Assurance Advisory Council.
