Digitalization and Maritime Security

Development of digital tools poses both opportunities but also new risks for the maritime industry. The integrity of GPS signals is compromised, causing chaos and Black Ships pose a new threat. In this session, we will address the advancement of digital technologies and discuss pros and cons
Since digitalization is continuously reshaping the maritime shipping industry, this session delves into the transformative effects of digital technologies on maritime operations and security. We explore how innovations such as big data, IoT, and generative AI are not only optimizing shipping logistics and operational efficiency but also presenting new challenges and opportunities in securing our maritime capabilities.

Using AI for leaner, cleaner, and smarter charter parties
Preparing a signed charter party is good governance, but is increasingly seen as a “task without value”. It is a time-consuming and laborious manual task often eventually completed long after the voyage has been completed. To help make the process faster and more efficient, BIMCO is developing AI tools to “re-imagine” the charter party for 21st-century shipping.

Navigation and pilotage under conditions with unstable GNSS and AIS signals 
Now and then, we are experiencing significantly changes in navigation like phasing out of traditional analogue ways of navigation, how can we as pilotage providers handle the challenges and risk, we face in relation of unstable GNSS and AIS signals?

Preparing for GPS failure
The once infallible GPS has revealed flaws and inaccuracy caused by human and AI interference. This session will discuss how navigating officers are taught to prepare for GPS failure

Andreas F. Wehowsky, Founder & CEO, Muninn
What is the current cyber threat and risk? How is cybersecurity approached by companies (maturity level, risk appetite with focus on the maritime sector) and why is AI important in cybersecurity for threat detection and prevention.

Christian Hendriksen, Ass. Professor, Copenhagen Business School
Generative AI in the Maritime Sector: A Transformative Technology or A Waste of Time?
We have entered the Age of AI, but what does this mean for the maritime sector? In this short presentation, Christian Hendriksen outlines the contours of what the 4th Industrial Revolution may mean for maritime firms and professionals.

Henning Heiselberg, Head of Security DTU, Senior Scientist, DTU Space 
DTU does research on maritime surveillance from space to seabed. We use AI for analysing satellite imagery, anomaly detection, acoustic signals from seabed optical fiber sensors, etc. As a result we monitor Dark Ships and Critical Infrastructures.
