Surviving a shipping cyber incident

Online event
Tuesday, 25 January 2022
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm (UK time)
    • Daniel Ng, CEO, Cyber Owl
    • Jonathan Goulding, Senior Associate & Mariner, HFW
  • Marine & Energy

In this IIL marine and energy webinar, Daniel Ng and Jonathan Goulding walk through a scenario of a cyber-attack on shipping operations to give participants an insight into how an attack typically unfolds. The speakers discuss the key commercial, technical, operational, legal and insurance factors to consider in the first few hours of the incident and the longer term. This webinar is intended to be practical and uncover the areas that shipping operations can prepare for, so they are ready when, not if, a cyber incident occurs.

Despite the increasing frequency and profile of cyber-attacks in the shipping sector, most shipping professionals have never experienced a cyber incident. Most assume the remediating actions are mainly technical, but in reality, there are commercial, operational, technological, legal, and insurance decisions to be made rapidly as the incident unfolds. A typical cyber-attack on shipping operations can develop very quickly. Rapid decisions will often need to be made to minimise disruption, minimise liabilities, avoid sanctions and rapidly restore operations. However, most ship owners and operators are unprepared for such an eventuality despite the IMO 2021 being in force for a year, requiring that fleet operators have incorporated cyber risk management into their safety management systems.

Learning objectives:

  • How a shipping cyber incident could practically unfold
  • Key commercial, technical, operational and insurance factors to consider in dealing with the cyber incident
  • Actions that shipping operators could take to prepare for and mitigate such an incident
