Sessions to be covered:

The Maritime Satcom Summit
Investigating the evolution of maritime connectivity:
This opening session of the day will look at how Innovation and Evolution in Maritime Connectivity is changing the operating landscape. What can these latest developments do to improve operational agility, create enhanced efficiency and, above all, reduce costs for the ship owner and manager.

Managing Maritime Cyber Resilience
A look at maritime cyber security, safety and risk:
How is the industry reacting to increased cyber threats borne out of the growing use of cloud and applications, reliance on automation and remote monitoring, the number of devices used, and larger ships but fewer crew. What policies, guidelines and best practices are already in place, and how can the industry identify, quantify and mitigate real cyber risk to business?

Reviewing crew communications, training and welfare:
Shipowners are well aware of the benefits of offering crew connectivity – with a recent study suggesting that 73% of those surveyed cite connectivity as a key influencer when choosing their employer. So how are users and providers alike reacting to this, and ensuring that their services and offerings meet the demands of these vital people?

The iShipping Revolution
How big data, IoT and analytics are bringing about a shift in smart shipping – and how can we harness disruptive influence to deliver innovation and opportunity:
Transformation, digitalization, disruptive influence, innovation. We know that the maritime sector is on the cusp of dramatic change – how can we harness all this date and all information to build our own businesses and make them smarter, safer, and more sustainable?

Plus: Networking Breaks – including a Reception on 14 February for all participants.
