Maritime Cyber Tech & Ops Webinar Day

09:00 - 17:30


Maritime Cyber Tech & Ops Webinar Day, be sure to join us

Regulation. Crisis Management. Human Factors. Ports


On Thursday 10 June 2021, Riviera’s Maritime Cyber Tech & Ops Webinar Day will focus on cyber security and risk management from four perspectives: (1) mitigating the threat of attack on assets, (2) IMO cyber risk management guidelines, six months on, (3) the human element and (4) securing ports against attack.


Each 1.5-hour session is tailored to highlight the magnitude of the cyber security risk to the maritime industry and will deliver practical insights into what you can do to protect your assets and crew going forward.


Registration is free, please sign up below


To guarantee a position on one of the panels, as either a premium partner or sponsored presenter and panellist, please speak with Paul Dowling. 



Please join us for any or all of the following:


Maritime cyber security and risk management: mitigating the threat of attack

Date: Thursday 10 June - Time: 09:00-10:30 BST


The need to mitigate cyber risk is clear and accepted. Charting an appropriate path that balances cost, compliance and operational risk is less straightforward. Our panel will assess what companies of varying sizes can do to harden OT and IT, build resilience into their supply chains and foster a ’cyber aware’ culture that enhances internal and industry-wide collaboration.


Join us as we discuss

  • Current maritime threats and countermeasures

  • Cost considerations for owners and managers

  • Moving on from paper-based compliance

  • What the maritime industry can learn from ransomware attacks in other sectors

  • How IT and OT can be hardened to withstand attack

  • Effective systems integration: joining the new with the old to prevent hacks and other cyber threats

  • The link between risk mitigation strategies and cyber risk insurance premiums

Cyber risk management in safety management systems - 6 months on

Date: Thursday 10 June - Time: 11:00-12:30 BST


The regulation regarding cyber risk management in safety management systems has been in place for 6 months. How have ship managers managed and what have the practical experiences been to date. Updates on inspections and audits – how are they going, what are the findings and where are the failures.


Join us as we discuss

  • What does this mean for the sector, what is required?

  • Is there sufficient guidance from the authorities?

  • How are state authorities practically applying the guidelines?

  • What have you learned and key observations since Jan 2021?

  • Are further guidelines/regulations required?

Human factors in maritime cyber security

Date: Thursday 10 June - Time: 13:00-14:30 BST



Join us as we share how process, technology, training (including gamification) and information sharing can mitigate the human factor – the least predictable of cyber maritime risks, whether acting as aggressor or defender.


Join us as we discuss

  • Minimising and mitigating the human factor in a maritime cyber attack

  • How to differentiate cyber security technology

  • Countering social engineering: defending against phishing attacks

  • Understanding and enhancing seafarer digital competencies

  • Can the human factor be engineered out of the process?
