1:00 pm - 3:00 pm WORKSHOP A: RAISING CYBER SECURITY AWARENESS
In our first workshop of the day, the focus will be around raising awareness both internally and across the sector, to ensure that the importance of cyber security is understood. It will provide a detailed look at recent attacks and worldwide alerts, as well as an understanding of the motivation behind the attacks. The key will be recognising what to consider next for the sector’s main stakeholders and regulating bodies.
In the effort to examine how to create effective cyber security campaigns for the maritime sector, the workshop will explore why some campaigns have failed in other sectors, and what is required for a campaign that works. It will also explain how campaigns can be monitored to ensure continued adherence. Attendees will work together to design an effective campaign for the sector, giving them the chance to pre-empt what difficulties they may find within their own organisation when launching awareness and training campaigns.
Attendees will take away an improved understanding of how to raise awareness internally, providing background evidence,
and an enhanced knowledge of what can be done to mitigate the threat of human error within their organisations.
3:00 pm - 5:30 pm WORKSHOP B: UNDERSTANDING THE RISK OF COMMON CYBER ATTACKS
In our second workshop, delegates will increase understanding of common cyber attacks, and how these can impact their organisations. This fits in with the need to educate and raise awareness of the risk of cyber attacks within the maritime sector. Attendees will get an overview of the attack categories, the motivation of the attackers, what they are looking for, and the potential routes of penetration into their network, including social engineering and vulnerability scanning.
This workshop will provide the attendees with a great knowledge of what common risks they face in their business, combined with the information gathered in the previous workshop around raising awareness, can start to build a cyber security plan to implement within their organisation, providing information around potential attacks, and how a basic level of cyber hygiene can be achieved to prevent incidents impacting their company and sector’s reputation.
