Date and Time

Join our panel as we embark online on a Shanghai to London container ship voyage to explore the cyber security processes, threats, decisions and consequences faced by crews, HQ personnel and vessels on this “typical” global supply chain route.

There is no doubt that the maritime sector faces increasing cyber risk. But what are the realistic cyber security threats confronting ship operators? And what are the implications for their insurance, their insurers, and lawyers on all sides?

Experts from HFW, Baker Tilly, the University of Plymouth’s Cyber-SHIP Lab and integrated insurance services and risk management advisors, Astaara, will explore realistic cyber vulnerabilities, attack consequences and how insurers and policies may or may not respond.
