Navarino was very proud to sponsor the Digital Ship Maritime CIO Forum in Hamburg earlier this year. The focus of the event was on how to harness the opportunities of higher bandwidth, and how to address the challenges and questions all these advances in technology are posing to our industry.
Through the three key sessions, it was asked how the industry is responding to change and investigated what technology and digital transformation can do for us in the maritime industry. Over the course of the three sessions participants investigated the evolution of maritime mobility and connectivity, looked at maritime cyber security and risk, and also learned about how big data, IoT and analytics are bringing about a shift in smart shipping – and how can we harness disruptive influences to deliver innovation and opportunity.
Navarino also sponsored the Digital Ship Maritime Cyber Resilience Forum in Athens this April. The cyber threat is growing across all sectors, and the forums main conclusions were that with the shipping sector’s increasing reliance on technology and remote monitoring, maritime cyber security is no longer optional, but is business-critical.
