OT-ISAC Digital Series: Staying Secure from Ship to Shore
Panel Discussion: Maritime Control System Cybersecurity
Do you have complete visibility and control over your vessel's critical systems? As the Maritime industry continues to embrace digitalization and develop interconnected Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) onboard vessels, malicious threat actors present a clear risk.
Hackers are ready to manipulate the software-controlled systems on your vessel to create economic disruption, induce an environmental catastrophe or even cause a lethal event in a congested port. As a response to this growing concern, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has recently published RESOLUTION MSC.428(98).
Join our panel discussion to learn about the current threat landscape and cybersecurity scenarios, the IMO requirements and impacted shipboard and shoreside control systems.
We will discuss policies, procedures and technical solutions that should be deployed with immediate effect by owners and operators of relevant infrastructures such as IMO registered ships and shoreside facilities, including:
- The threats posing risks to the maritime ecosystem and the key cybersecurity incidents that could impact them
- The most pressing challenges and vulnerable systems (such as GPS) and best practices to mitigate risk
- How collaboration is key for the defense and protection of maritime cybersecurity
