A panel of subject matter experts from industry, regulatory and governmental roles. Through a lively panel exchange, experts will share lessons learned and demonstrated innovation and practices that can be incorporated into Maritime operations ensuring secure authentication, data protection at rest, in process and during transmission is protected:
1455 – 1525 Afternoon break and networking in vendor display area
1530 - 1655 Panel Discussion 4: Educational Round Table: A panel of Maritime Academic and Training Institutions will explore the potential for blending Cyber Skills into Maritime Education and Training. Can (should) cyber awareness be blended into both Engineering and Marine Transportation tracks. Similar to pipe fitting/welding, radar, firefighting, and other certifications, that a Mariner receives with their diploma and licenses, cybersecurity awareness is essential to the safety of life at sea. Vendors that develop and provide systems for Maritime use have or can develop vulnerability mitigations. However, the Mariner needs to be cognizant of vulnerabilities to request/ demand system updates and upgrades that include protections.
Cyber unnecessarily remains a mystery to most Mariner's, afloat and ashore, who don't even know the basics needed ask questions and challenge vendors (this is not unique to our industry). It is important that awareness be trained early and refreshed periodically.
