Port Technology International hosted IAPH cyber experts

Our new associate member Port Technology International held an online cybersecurity event for ports and terminals yesterday for over 200 maritime and port professionals. Opening the conference, IAPH Data Collaboration chairman Pascal Ollivier (president, Maritime Street) made a keynote on key insights and practices based on the work completed by over 20 authors from our membership ranks for the IAPH Cybersecurity Guidelines for Ports and Port Facilities. The document  was recently endorsed by IMO during FAL-76 and will be mentioned in MSC-FAL.1/Circ.3, effectively establishing a port industry standard alongside the BIMCO cybersecurity guidelines for shipping. In addition, two authors of the guidelines (Max Bobys of Hudson Cyber and Gadi Benmoshe of Marinnovators) took part in the panel discussion on how ports and terminals can build effective resilience against evolving cyber threats.
