The Future of iShipping
13 October 2016, Singapore


The maritime industry is on the cusp of radical and far-reaching advances in technology, and there are ever increasing factors for shipping companies to consider. With this in mind, Digital Ship is pleased to announce a new format for our 10th annual Digital Ship event in Singapore: The Maritime CIO Forum Singapore. And this year the focus is on The Future of iShipping and how to address and harness the opportunities, challenges and questions advances in technology are posing to our industry.

How are advances and new channels in satellite operations changing the face of communications, data usage and sharing? With increased data usage comes increased risk – so what are the right strategies for managing safety and security? And what is the impact of all of this on the people that really matter – our crew?

The Forum will discuss what policies, guidelines and best practices are already in place, and how the industry can identify, quantify and mitigate cyber risk. The Forum will also ask if there is a gulf between perception and reality, and what are the real business risks?

1400 - Session 3: Connect@Sea - Panel
Reviewing crew communications, training and welfare
Shipowners are well aware of the benefits of offering crew connectivity – with a recent study suggesting that 73% of those surveyed cite connectivity as a key influencer when choosing their employer. So how are users and providers alike reacting to this, and ensuring that their services and offerings meet the demands of these vital people?

And what else should we as an industry be considering? How can training influence both the seafarers’ competence and thus the shipping companies bottom line? And how do increased data collection requirements impact their role and training requirements.
