    Making Nautical Operations in Ports Cyber-Proof and Risk Resilient


    The blocking of the Ever Given in the Suez Canal has once again illustrated how vulnerable global supply chains are and how one local incident can have a full-scale ‘butterfly effect. Cybercrime brings unexpected dimensions to this vulnerability. In this session, we will discuss a recent maritime cybercase with an unexpected Ocean's Eleven-like plot. We will explore how nautical port services like dredging and towage are cyber-proofing themselves to ensure secure operations and avoid local incidents having potentially worldwide implications.
