Are the Operational Technology (OT) systems onboard your vessel vulnerable to cyber threats? Poor cybersecurity risk management of these systems and networks could lead to safety and operational hazards and can have catastrophic effects on operations, the environment or even cause loss of life. Assessments of vessel OT systems provide awareness of the current cyber conditions and unique vulnerabilities onboard. After completing 70+ vessel assessments, our experienced team of assessors has compiled and analyzed the most common observations, vulnerabilities and questions relating to maritime OT cybersecurity.

How isolated are vessel OT systems? What does a proper maritime OT Cybersecurity Incident Response Plan look like? What about proper Management of Change policies and procedures? And why is asset and inventory knowledge so important? All these questions will be addressed during this presentation, accompanied by real-life examples that will illustrate how you can better identify, protect, detect, respond and recover from the growing industrial cyber threats. This presentation takes years of experience from the field and condenses it into the most important lessons learned that you need to know now.

We will also discuss the future of OT cybersecurity, exploring topics such as Industrial Security Operations Centers (ISOC), network scanning and top concerns from different sectors of the maritime industry.

Learning Objectives for Presentation:
  • Understand the safety and operational cyber risks to OT systems onboard vessels
  • Learn how you can upgrade your cybersecurity capabilities 
  •  Learn where the maritime industry is heading in regard to OT cybersecurity

Strategies and Tools:
  • Cyber-enabled asset inventories
