Specialized Advanced Master® in Port and Maritime Systems Cybersecurity

The « Port and Maritime Systems Cybersecurity » Specialized Advanced Master®, the only one of its kind in Europe, aims to help you develop sought-after skills in countering current attacks and detecting future threats in the port and maritime sectors.

Become a specialist in cybersecurity able to design, defend and operate specific systems in the port and maritime sectors.

  • Cybersecurity in the maritime world
  • Cybersecurity of software and networks
  • Cybersecurity of industrial systems
  • Cyberdefense

From the bridge to the engine room, right up to the port infrastructure, a modern working ship uses industrial systems and information systems for positioning, communicating, transmitting commands to equipment or receiving information on any onboard anomaly. This digitalization, governing performance, also increases the vulnerability of the maritime world: port paralysis, attempts to intrude upon or modify the ships capabilities can have severe financial, human, technological and environmental consequences.

Who is this training for?

This training, the only one of its kind in Europe, is for engineers or Master graduates. It is also open to candidates who have a Bachelor with Honors and a minimum of 3 years professional experience. Candidates who hold a Bachelor with Honors but who do not have experience or an ordinary Bachelor with a minimum of 3 years professional experience may be considered. 

What skills are developed?

This training will enable you to:
