In-Person Event to Focus on Practices for Cyber Safe, Secure and Resilient Operations
WILMINGTON, DELAWARE, U.S., May 23, 2022 -- Today, the Maritime Transportation System Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MTS-ISAC) announced the fourth annual Maritime Cybersecurity Summit is scheduled for November 16 and 17, 2022. This year’s Summit will be held at the Ports America Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in the Port of New York and New Jersey. The event is designed to bring together maritime transportation system public and private sector executives responsible for organizational risk management and industry cybersecurity professionals from around the globe to focus on safe, secure, and resilient supply chain operational practices.
At the direction of the MTS-ISAC Board of Directors, the Maritime Cybersecurity Summit was acquired and will serve as its flagship annual event going forward. This fourth event will be the first in-person only Summit since the inaugural event was held in 2019.
“Maritime stakeholders are wanting to get back to in-person events to meet and discuss their efforts. During the pandemic, adversaries have sharpened their skills at the same time regulations have increased. It’s a great time to bring together this community of maritime critical infrastructure stakeholders for ground truth conversations about navigating the challenges being faced today and what lies ahead,” said Scott Dickerson, MTS-ISAC Executive Director and the Maritime Cybersecurity Summit founder. "We will offer two distinct tracks for attendees, one for business leaders and then a technical cybersecurity track."
The agenda will include sessions such as: evolving boardroom considerations, game planning effective defense strategies, developing an effective security architecture, managing vulnerabilities in an increasingly interconnected landscape, and strategies for maximizing collaboration through exercises and drills. Success stories resulting from effective information exchange, a key tenant of the MTS-ISAC, will be on full display at the Summit as well.
Information regarding keynote speakers and vendors sponsors will be announced in the coming weeks.
