Big Data in Shipping and Cyper Security

Big Data is a new buzzword in the shipping community Learn more about: • BIG DATA versus smart data • The Maritime Cloud • Maritime Cyber Risks - What is real, What is fiction? • Industry Guidelines on Cyber Security

Mandag d. 26. oktober 2015

Kl. 16:00 - 20:00




Big Data is a new buzzword in the shipping community – promising great results, and a concept that cannot be separated from requirements for Cyber Security. This meeting will deal with both; giving a broad overview of new projects within the roam of Big Data, and an update on what is going on with regard to Cyber Security.

In collaboration with Danish Society of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering.


16:00 - 16:10 Introduction to tonight’s subject
by Erik I. Tvedt, Secretary general of DSNAME

16:10 - 16:40  BIG DATA versus smart data
by Mr. Sascha Müller, DNV GL

“Big data” promises business benefits in terms of timely insights from data, real-time monitoring and forecasting of events, more fact-based decisions, and improved management of performance and risk. This may rise a new industry, largely Internet-based, the main asset of which is data, and which offers completely new value propositions based on data and insights from data.
Traces of the new data reality can be found within the following main areas of the shipping industry:
• Technical operation and maintenance
• Energy efficiency (cost and environment)
• Safety performance
• Management and monitoring of accident risks from shipping traffic
• Commercial operation (as part of a logistic chain)
• Automation of ship operations (long-term)
This presentation will give a brief introduction to how the industry may benefit.

16:40 – 17:15 The Maritime Cloud
by Mr. Bjørn Borbye Pedersen, Work Package Lead in EfficienSea 2

The EU Commission has granted 10 mio. EUR under the Horizon 2020 programme, for the project EfficienSea 2, gathering 32 partners from 10 European countries and international organisations. A prime objective is to create and implement a communication- and service infrastructure framework – the ‘Maritime Cloud’.
Taking lessons learned from other domains (the financial sector, ‘NemID’) into account, one of the goals of this infrastructure framework is to provide enablers for uniform maritime identity and role management for access control to providers of systems and services, and provide supporting mechanisms for authentication, encryption and validation of authenticity, raising the security level in maritime communication and enabling the utilization of dedicated maritime as well as commercial datalinks. ‘Usability’ and ‘availability’ are key words here, as any security mechanism with poor usability or malfunction due to unavailability of a central system is likely to generate ‘workarounds’ that counteract efforts to address cyber security.
Through a service registry, standards and protocols taking the challenges of maritime digital communication capabilities into account, another goal is to enable an open, global marketplace for provision and discovery of data services and applications targeted the maritime transport sector.

17:15 – 18:00 Maritime Cyber Risks – What is real, what is fiction?
by Lars Jensen from Cyber Keel

There is no shortage of "Hollywood scenarios" as it pertains to cyber risks. CyberKeel has developed an overview of the real risks as they apply to the maritime industry, based on actual incidents. This leads to an overview of actions which senior management in any maritime company needs to contemplate - particularly that cyber security cannot be seen purely as an IT matter.

18:30 - 19:00 Industry Guidelines on Cyber Security
by Lars Robert Pedersen, BIMCO

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has already called for action against cyber security threats and the insurance industry repeatedly lists the issue as one for concern.
Modern ships are controlled and monitored by software, which controls systems for the main engine, steering and navigation systems, the ballast water and cargo handling equipment, just to mention some. The vulnerabilities can be numerous, and the question of protection is a complex set of issues - not just about operating a firewall on a ship or installing virus scanning software on the onboard computers.
To address this and help the industry to protect itself against cyber risks, BIMCO together with a number of organisations are working on developing industry standards and guidelines for ships and shipboard equipment. The presentation will outline this work.

19:00 - 19:30 Cyber Security and Cyber Threats from a national perspective
by Ejnar Fischer Rigelsen, Danish Centre for Cybersecurity

The Centre for Cybersecurity will give a general briefing of the actual cyber threat scenario.
The briefing will focus on threats like Advanced Persistent Threats Attack (cyber espionage), Cyber Activism and the Insider.
Who, How, Where and WHY will be topics that will be covered and it will be supplemented with case stories that illuminates the threats.

19:30 – 20:00 Panel discussion
moderated by Erik I. Tvedt, Secretary general of DSNAME

1. Who owns shipping data? Crew, shipowner, pilot, shipyard, equipment manufacturer – this is not only personal but often commercial sensitive.

2. How can we make Cyber Security and Big Data requirements for data work hand in hand?

3. Privacy – for whom and when?
