CYpBER 2020 – goes VIRTUAL on Wednesday 3 JUNE 2020

There is no future without development, and this is not achieved without a digital environment and integrated technologies. In this scope there are no borders between countries or between the public and private sectors neither between the various economic and industrial activities. There is only customized knowledge, communication, interaction, progress and evolution. As a consequence, there is a challenge concerning security and risk reduction in the operation and maintenance process.

Cyberattacks in 2018 are ranked among the top three threats facing the world, according to the World Economic Forum.

Cyber security should be seen as an integral part of overall management against the increasing trend of threats both in scope and complexity.

Maritime sector
Cyber security is now a priority in the shipping sector, as it is an interesting yet sensitive target for cyber attacks.
It is proven that 90% of global trade is transported by merchant ships, increasingly dependent on digital and operational technology, coupled with the vast network of service providers, while port management also plays a central role in the supply chain of the globalized market and real impact in the daily lives of most of the world’s population.

Oil & Gas sector
Cybersecurity is a top priority for Upstream, Midstream and Downstream functions in the Oil & Gas industry.
From wells to terminals & fuel stations, throughout the full value chain, a huge attack surface is created which could lead to economic or life losses up to very serious environmental incidents.

Energy sector
Cyber Security in the energy sector is a major concern. From conventional or renewable production, transportation, storage and distribution, energy is inarguably one of the most critical assets in modern society. It is all about its stability and prosperity.

CYpBER 2020 is taking place virtually on Wednesday 3 June 2020

We look forward to receive your interest on awareness of CyberSecurity and to explore together new approaches and challenges towards the security and risk assessment for the Maritime, Oil & Gas and Energy sectors in the emerging Eastern Mediterranean.
