Capacity Building: Cyber Security of Ports and Maritime Transport (Strat)

Robust port and maritime cybersecurity is essential for national and international security, military readiness, and efficient supply chains. During this session, the EU CyberNet will share experiences from research carried out in cooperation with the CRIMSON project on maritime cybersecurity in African ports and with other EU-funded projects on port security in Latin America. The session describes deficiencies identified in the cybersecurity of ports and the root causes of these deficiencies, which arise from the specific nature of their infrastructure. The experts participating in the panel will share their perspectives on port infrastructure from the points of view of port operators, state supervision, development aid providers, and military planning. The session also introduces the lessons learned from large-scale training organised for West African ports.
