SCMO & CCC organize CBS Executive to deliver a Maritime Cyber Security course for Managers – Hong Kong

Hong Kong at the lead in maritime cyber security with CBS Executive “Maritime Cyber Security” course

[ Hong Kong, February 3rd 2017 ] - We now live in a world where the new normal is 1 million new virus and 110 billion spams every day. This paradigm shift has been hitting hard the Internet, the global economy, and the maritime industry is particularly vulnerable to it. CBS Executive has chosen Hong Kong to deliver its first “Maritime Cyber Security” course for Managers on 30 & 31 March 2017.

Piracy is no longer just a matter of gangs entering vessels in the middle of the night. The threat of cyber space is building up rapidly with the potential of posing even bigger risks, also for the crews. Ghost ships, AIS spoofing, phantom cargoes, GPS jamming, smuggling, ECDIS manipulation, cyber piracy, ransomware, and spear-phishing are now common occurrences.

The maritime industry seems to be rather unaware and unprepared. And considering the asset & cargo high values involved, as well as its global exposure, the cost of cyber security breaches in the maritime sector ranges from millions of US$ to hundreds of millions. But there are concrete measures. And it is those that this "Maritime Cyber Security" course apprehends and teaches in a very detailed and practical way.

This 2 days course will provide both maritime business and IT managers with a solid foundation upon which to initiate a closer review of their cyber defenses. Most crucially, the course makes it clear how cyber security has to be embedded not only in the IT department, but throughout the business processes and daily behavior of all employees. It will also show actual examples to illustrate different types of cyber-attacks designed in such a way that deep IT technical knowledge is not required.

The course is aimed at C-Level Executives from shipping lines, shipping agents, ship & crew management companies, charterers, brokers, commodities traders, port & terminal authorities/ developers/ operators, port & maritime suppliers and service providers, government and regulator, institutions, insurance and P&I clubs, freight forwarders specialized in maritime, banks and investors, law firms, and risk mitigation firms specialized in shipping and trade finance.

The "Maritime Cyber Security" course will be delivered by Lars Jensen, a member of CBS Executive faculty team. Lars is also CEO and a Partner with SeaIntel Consulting, the co-founder of SeaIntel Maritime Analysis, and CEO and founder of CyberKeel, focusing on cyber-security in the maritime industry. Lars past positions in the maritime industry include Director of driving and developing market intelligence & analysis for Maersk Line, Maersk Logistics and The Containership Company, CEO of the purely online container carrier Youship, and the head of developing and implementing eCommerce strategy in Maersk Line.

Hong Kong was chosen not only for its strategic positioning as a world's leading port, but also as the driver of the world's largest maritime & logistics hub that is the "Pearl River Delta" region, as well as for its strategic positioning within China Belt and Road deployment.

What do railways teach us? How to finance such railways? How to turn the land-locked factor weakness into a strength? What logistics ecosystems does rail belong to?
