Cybersecurity has become a prime factor in global social and economic stability. The increasing importance of cyber security has been enhanced by the international events through the collateral effects of the Global Pandemics and the War in Ukraine. The Euro-Atlantic area is one of the most exposed in terms of cyber risks due to geopolitical conditions and the high degree of technology that attracts inherent threats from state and non-state cyber attackers.
As a global industry, the maritime one is of overwhelming importance by its nature and by its ability to affect the world economy through strategic rebound effects. Maritime cybersecurity will have to address extremely difficult issues because the maritime industry functions as an area of convergence of critical infrastructures where the risk of contagion and adverse effects that are difficult to estimate is very high.
To address this complex issue of cyber security in the maritime field, Constanta Maritime University, with the support of the European Security and Defense College, is pleased to invite all EU Member States, EU institutions, EU relevant agencies as well as all interested experts to the following events:
SUMMER SCHOOL: As a major training resource, Cyber ETEE Summer School (strategic/tactical/ technical level), will take place in Constanta, Romania at the headquarters of the Maritime University between 12-15 July 2022.
