From the bridge to the engine room to the port infrastructure, the operation of a modern ship uses industrial and information systems to position itself, communicate, transmit orders to the engine or be informed of any anomaly on board. This digitisation, a vector of performance, also increases the attack surface of the maritime world: the paralysis of a port, intrusion attempts or the modification of a ship's capacities can have major financial, human, technological and environmental consequences.

The post-master degree Cybersecurity of Maritime and Port Systems responds to major strategic challenges and to a strong need of maritime companies and players. This training course, unique in Europe, aims to deal with all the risks that can affect ports, ships and all types of offshore platforms, providing expertise to counter current attacks and detect future threats.
