No Safe Harbors: Charting a Smarter Course (Join Maritime Cyber Webinar)

No Safe Harbors: A Webinar Wednesday, March 21 at 2 PM, and You're Invited!
Last year saw an unprecedented, tectonic shift in our increasingly cyber-dependent world. Especially in the maritime domain. No Safe Harbors: A Webinar Wednesday, March 21 at 2 PM, and You're Invited!

There are no “Safe Harbors” when it comes to avoiding or preventing the next cyber attack.

So what do you do? What do maritime stakeholders (shipping companies, terminal operators, cruise lines, port authorities) need to do to prevent, prepare for and respond to the next attack on the horizon?

Is “status quo” an option? I don’t think so.

To coin an old adage that has been used in many sports discussions and is also known as a principal of war, “The best defense is a good offense.”

The National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy (NMLEA) would like to invite you to their live webinar titled “No Safe Harbors: Charting a Smarter Course” which will focus on maritime operations and the recent cyber events and emerging threats in the industry while outlining a better route for our maritime partners.

This webinar will demonstrate tools and resources that maritime stakeholders can utilize to be Proactive and control their cyber risk.
