Topic: Hackers & Pirates (Cybersecurity at the High Seas)
Short overview:

In a world of global trade, many products are transported between different continents in ships. This means that sea transport forms an important link of the logistics chain for most physical product. The navigation and control of moderns hips rely increasingly on digital systems, and autonomous vessels are being tested in several areas, but ships are rarely considered part of the critical cyber infrastructure. This talk examines the cyber security of marine based installations, in particular ships. The presentation will present an overview of the attack surface of modern ships, identify different attack vectors and discuss different mitigation techniques.
