Sera-Brynn Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Darek Dabbs will present at the Southeastern Admiralty Law Institute conference with Darius K. Davenport, of Crenshaw, Ware & Martin, P.L.C., Norfolk, VA.
With several recent cyberattacks targeting the shipping and logistics industry, Dabbs and Davenport will discuss “Anatomy of a Cyber Breach” on June 29. “As industries in the supply chain increasingly rely on automation, the need for high-level security protocols increases and it is more important than ever to understand and be prepared to contain a breach,” says Dabbs.
The Petya virus crippled thousands of computers in the worldwide shipping and logistics industry. Among those struck was A.P. Moller-Maersk, the world’s largest container-shipping line. On its corporate website, Maersk reports on how the attack brought down its network and how its IT staff safely restored thousands of servers, 50,000 employee computers and all business applications.
In addition to discussing preparedness, Dabbs will also perform a live hacking demonstration. The conference is presented by the State Bar of Georgia. Registration and conference information is available here.
