Jesse BrinkioCurrents | Rob HarrisonDP World | Daniel NgCyberOwl | Olav NortunThome Group | Alberto PerezInmarsat

Data is the foundation of the maritime industry’s future. Without strong, reliable, verifiable data, shipping companies will be shut out of finance and struggle to find markets in which to operate. This session explores how the industry is co-operating to make the best use of the data it creates and ensuring data are accessible and useful to stakeholders while remaining protected from cyber threats.
