ENSTA Bretagne is backing the development of this sector at a time when ports and vessels are being increasingly digitized, autonomous vessels and drones are being developed and cyber threats are on the rise
France cyber maritime’s main goals are to :
- unite the various stakeholders in the maritime and cybersecurity sectors and strengthen the national maritime cybersecurity ecosystem so as to raise its profile in Europe and on the international stage.
- develop a range of high value-added services in cybersecurity geared towards the maritime and port industries: consultancy and expertise, training and coaching, analysis and alerts, keeping in secure working order, R&D, promotion and leadership.
- centralize and coordinate cybersecurity incidents in the maritime and port industries to enable stakeholders to better anticipate new threats, by forming an operational team called the Maritime Computer Emergency Response Team (M-CERT).
France Cyber Maritime is a Brest-based association chaired by Frédéric Moncany de Saint Aignan, who is also President of the Cluster Maritime Français.
Along with ENSTA Bretagne, a range of public and private stakeholders are supporting this new structure, including SGMer, ANSSI, the region of Brittany and Greater Brest area, as well as such maritime and cybersecurity operators as: CMA CGM, Elengy, Cluster Maritime Français, GICAN, Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique, Bessé, Bureau Veritas, DIATEAM, Ecole Navale, ENSM, ENSTA Bretagne, HarfangLab, IMT Atlantique, Naval Group, SEKOIA, SYNACKTIV, Thales and Yes We Hack.
