Cybersecurity: Hoping For The Best But Preparing For The Worst

Su Ross will be speaking on, "Cybersecurity: Hoping For The Best But Preparing For The Worst," at the Port Performance Conference 2017 hosted by the Journal of Commerce (JOC). This panel will be held on Wednesday, December 13 at 9:00 AM (EST). 

The brutal June 27 global “NotPetra” cyberattack that involved Maersk Group was a stark reminder to most shipping lines, terminal operators, freight forwarders, and beneficial cargo owners that their protective mechanisms are inadequate. Maersk’s loss of online cargo booking capability and the crippling of terminal operations lasted nearly two weeks, and pushed the supply chain logistics chain back to the Dark Ages of manual document filing and gate operations. It doesn’t have to be that way. Follow-up investigations by cyber security experts found that in many instances all sectors of the supply chain were operating outdated security systems. In this must-view panel, cyber security experts will provide an education on how to plan for future attacks, and develop recovery systems that will keep the pain of future attacks to a minimum.
