As part of the Monaco Yacht Show, the Monaco Yacht Club has hosted a specialised event for industry players, the Yachting Security Forum.
On Wednesday, September 27, the first day of the two-day forum, Rear-Admiral Dominique Riban, Director of the Monaco Agency for Digital Security, spoke on the topic of computer threats and their consequences.
Due to the increasing dependence on computerisation, yacht owners must take into account the security of the computer systems they use, the forum was told.
The purpose of the Yachting Security Forum is to take stock of yachting safety solutions worldwide.
Other participants on Wednesday included Fabrice Marquet, Director of MonacoTech, and Grégoire Germain, Head of Defensive IT and Cybersecurity at Thales.
