The recent hiccups in the logistic of Global Supply Chains, resulting from the stress posed by the measures to curb the spreading of the pandemic, followed by a subsequent acceleration in the world economy, have clearly shown that the global supply chains are inherently fragile. In addition, the same has been seen, to a smaller scale, with the recent cyber-attacks: Colonial Pipeline, that impacted the distribution of oil on the East Coast of the US; Maersk ransomware, whose related outages put the first stress test on the logistics chain; and solar-winds, whose depth and breadth of compromising (and associated consequences) has not been fully understood yet.

The discussion will touch, but it will not be limited to, the following themes:

  • Maritime Cybersecurity;
  • Avionics Cybersecurity;
  • SATCOM security;
  • Drones as both attack vectors and security enablers.
