The world is becoming increasingly digitally dependent and this means more cyber-security risks for your business as well as more opportunities to gain an advantage over your competitors.
In a positive move to boost cyber-resilience, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) has adopted regulation MSC.428 (98) which…
‘…encourages administrations to ensure that cyber risks are appropriately addressed in safety management systems no later than the first annual verification of the company's Document of Compliance after 1 January 2021.’
In association with The Society of Maritime Industries Digital Technology Group, we will host a short 20-minute ‘Cyber for competitive advantage’ webinar on Tuesday 21 January at 11am. With only a year remaining before the deadline, we’ll lift the lid on the regulation and explore the implications for the sector.
The IMO has recognised that the information technology and operational technology systems on ships can be hacked just as easily as systems ashore, and that such security breaches have the potential to do significant harm to the safety and security of ships, ports, marine facilities and other elements of the maritime transportation system.
The webinar will offer a business-centric perspective that encourages organisations to view the approaching deadline in terms of the potential for competitive advantage. More specifically, we’ll explore ways in which organisations can take advantage of the new regulatory demands to boost their own competitive position and ultimately reap the financial benefits.
Rather than regarding cyber-security as a costly necessary evil, our webinar will show you how approach it as an opportunity to turn the tables and make the new security demands work for you and your business.
