From cyber-crime to environmental issues, Bulk Terminals 2017 will examine what the future holds for bulk terminal operations, looking at the most effective ways in which terminal managers can respond to operational challenges. This will include sessions on Biomass, security and how the latest systems and technologies can enable terminals run more efficient, safer and profitable operations.

Be Cyber Aware At Sea is a global maritime and offshore industry initiative to raise awareness of the increasing maritime cyber threats to international shipping, ports and offshore operations.

More than 90% of world trade including the global transportation of energy is conducted by sea and our reliance on technology continues to increase, we are now very much immersed in the digital era.

Ships and offshore platforms are becoming more sophisticated and in many cases crews are getting smaller. The cyber threat at sea poses significant security, safety and financial risks to shipping and offshore operations. Cyber security should be considered a board level priority issue in order to tackle this emerging threat at sea. www.becyberawareatsea.com

TOC is the global meeting place for ports, terminals, shipping lines, 3PLs & shippers. TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst continuing to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with its heritage, TOC also recognises the importance of hearing from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. http://www.toc-events.com/
