This session provides up to date information on legal, regulatory and liability considerations and gives you the tools you need to build and develop an effective risk management strategy.

Session Chairman: Edwin Lampert, Head of Content, Riviera Maritime Media

09.15 Legal and regulatory compliance in the cyber incident response context

  • Positive obligations under GDPR and how to comply with them in the cyber incident context.
  • Other obligations which may be of relevance, including NIS.
  • Going beyond “mere compliance” – how best to respond to cyber incidents in a way which mitigates the risk of losses and liabilities more generally?

Steven Hadwin, Head of Operations – Risk Advisory and Cyber Security, Norton Rose Fulbright

09.35 Cyber risk management - the guidelines on cyber security onboard ships

  • Identifying roles and responsibilities.
  • Identifying systems, assets, data and capabilities that pose risks to ship operations when disrupted.
  • Protect, detect, respond and recover: implementing risk control measures and contingency plans to provide resilience and restore systems vital for ship operations impacted by a cyber incident.

Michael Hawthorne, CEO, Cobweb Cyber

09.55 Insurance cover for liability and property damage arising from a cyber incident

  • Distinguish between the different aspects of the term “cyber”.
  • Ensure that you are acting with reasonable care in your approach to managing cyber risk.
  • Exclusion clauses - What losses are and aren’t covered by Norwegian Hull Club, which could arise from a cyber incident, and are not in the nature of third-party liabilities arising from the operation of the ship?

Morten Aalén, Head of Loss Prevention and Emergency Response, Norwegian Hull Club

10.15 Q&As

10.35 Coffee and networking break in the exhibition area (Terrace Suite, 9th floor)


As there still seems to be an attitude of ‘it won’t happen to me’, How many shipping companies have understood the risks that satellite and onboard equipment bring? These case study presentations allow you to understand what ship owners are doing and not doing. How are they trying to cope, and which measures are they taking?

Session Chairman: Philip Roche, Partner, Norton Rose Fulbright

11.15 What can be learnt from a cyber-attack case study?

  • Where to start? How to take essential and necessary good first steps?
  • What is the protocol between onboard and ashore systems when strange connections and unusual plugging are detected?
  • How to test the security of the ship systems?
  • How service providers improve business security, helping companies implementing digitalisation and implementing programmes?

Senior Representative, OneTrust

11.35 Implementing the lessons learned from a major cyber attack

In June 2017 Maersk suffered a major NotPetya cyber-attack, this session explains lessons learned, and how they are now being applied within Maersk.

  • How the Cyber-attack happened?
  • How was it dealt with and what steps were taken?
  • What were the consequences?
  • What were the cost implications?
  • What was the follow up to the cyber threat? Contingency plan.

Andy Powell, CISO, A.P Moller – Maersk

11.55 Cyber lessons learned from Industrial Control Systems - What can the maritime industry learn from the ICS

  • What changes have happened in the post-Stuxnet era ICS world and the what challenges control system asset owners are facing?
  • What kind of approaches are the advanced manufacturing companies using in protecting their critical control systems?
  • What are the main challenges we still face nearly 10 years after Stuxnet?
  • How can maritime industry best utilise the ground work laid by the ICS community? ICS standards, frameworks and best practices applicable to the maritime industry.

Janne Taponen, Maritime Cyber Security Expert, F-Secure

12.15 Q&As


Session Chairman: Edwin Lampert, Head of Content, Riviera Maritime Media

12.35 What is the magnitude of cyber risk?
Based on a cyber-attack scenario, you will be able to discuss the possible outcomes and solutions and highlight the complexity of the maritime cyber security sector. This will give you the opportunity to verify your own ideas and plans:

  • The problem is now, but what is the real magnitude of cyber risk?
  • Business security challenges to the exponential growth of the IoT. Are you on the verge of being attacked?
  • How do we convince the main boards of shipping companies to take cyber risks seriously?
  • Find the right balance and allocate a budget to reduce risk exposure and implement it.

16.05 Coffee and networking break in the exhibition area (Terrace Suite, 9th floor)


What should the industry do to reduce cyber risks? Should cyber security responsibilities be moved up a level and from IT to Operations? A change in approach to the problem needs to occur. Stakeholders are spreading the risk awareness beyond those who are ready and engaged to those who aren’t to defeat the cyber threat.
