The Forum will discuss what policies, guidelines and best practices are already in place, and how the industry can identify, quantify and mitigate cyber risk. The Forum will also ask if there is a gulf between perception and reality, and what are the real business risks?

1700 - From Port Community System (PCS) to Cargo Intelligent System (CiS).
          -  After reviewing how Port Community Systems have been implemented and

             ports switch from cargo logistics to data logistics. That is why MGI brings today
             the concept of Port Cargo Intelligent System.
