Tackling cybersecurity for port-wide digitalization: securing networks, data, and remote access applications

📆 Wednesday, May 29th 2024 - 3:00 PM (BST) 📆

In order to become more efficient, sustainable, and safer, today’s ports increasingly turning to digital technologies to optimize their operations. With more processes being digitalized, seamless connectivity is now a basic functional requirement for ports, as well as an enabler of innovation in smart applications such as remotely managed equipment, predictive maintenance, and intelligent video monitoring. Consequently, maintaining robust, end-to-end cybersecurity to protect a port’s data, systems, equipment and people has never been more important. In this webinar, our industry experts demonstrate how the built-in security protocols and zero trust architecture of private 5G networks, enhanced with the capabilities of Onelayer’s cellular network security platform (including detailed digital fingerprinting and asset visibility), combined with SSH’s remote access management solution all offer an optimized approach to securing digital assets and operations across connected ports.

Plans are nothing, planning is everything: How Portchain Quay enables better decision-making for terminal berth planning

Berth planning for container terminals has become more dynamic and complex due to frequent disruptions and constant schedule changes. Berth planning is a crucial function to optimize operational performance, yet many terminals still use rudimentary, outdated tools not geared for today’s dynamic planning needs. Portchain Quay is a modern berth planning solution for terminals and ports to optimize quayside operations.

Join the webinar to learn how more accurate berth planning can improve operations and build trust with your customers and internal stakeholders. Learn how other terminal operators make berth planning more dynamic and proactive to optimize their quayside operations. For terminals already using Portchain Connect for berth alignment with shipping lines, this webinar will highlight how you can leverage both products to take your planning to the next level.

Navigate the New Path to Terminal Automation: Insights and Strategies

How can container terminal operators stay ahead in a rapidly evolving industry? The key lies in balancing efficiency with 24/7 operations while remaining costs low. Automated systems are the crucial piece of the puzzle, enabling operators to streamline container handling with precision and reliability at the scale required to meet growing trade volumes. Along with this shift, improved data visibility is seeing terminals make data-driven decisions to increase their ability to adapt to market demand and strengthen their market position over the long term.

Join our expert panel, featuring industry leaders Oliver Risse, Investment Partner at HHLA Next, Peter Szelei, Senior Director Business Development at FFERNRIDE and Zack Lu, Senior Project Manager and Principal Consultant at Portwise. The speakers delve into the current state challenges, and prospects of port automation.

Learn more about how the application of human-assisted autonomy is removing barriers to transformation in container terminals with insights from the last 12 months of live operations.

Design + Build a Digital Twin to Improve Smart Port Performance

As ports and their supply chain partners digitalize business operations, digital twins are a useful tool for visualizing and understanding complex systems and processes within one integrated model. Ports often start with creating 3D site models that incorporate maps (GIS) and facilities data to help with the planning and development of construction and maintenance projects. These virtual representations of the port site can then be augmented with live sensor and video data to establish digital twins with real-time situational awareness. Furthermore, digital twins that continuously intake real-time data can start to predict emergent issues such as congestion, security threats, heightened energy consumption or network utilization, and automatically respond to them before the problems become critical.

To learn how ports and industry partners are putting this into practice today, join our webinar with leading experts from Massport, Ericsson, Hexagon, and Fresh Consulting.

Enabling Green Ports Series: Leverage Green Energy as a Revenue Stream

This FREE webinar is closing out the 3-part series on Enabling Green Ports. In this webinar, you'll learn how to leverage green energy as a revenue stream.

Energy is a potential revenue stream. Beyond balancing the cost of capital investments with savings against grid energy retail prices, self-generation and storage creates opportunities to supply energy to the grid when prices are favorable.

With sufficient self-generation capacity, ports can develop private wire systems, trading energy with nearby businesses, hotels, industrial parks, electric vehicle charging hubs, and green hydrogen facilities. Private wire systems can create a reliable customer base and strengthen the port's sustainability credentials by contributing to the local green economy.

Enabling Green Ports Series: Accurately Accounting for Carbon Emissions

This FREE webinar is the second in a 3-part series on Enabling Green Ports. In this webinar, we will explore how to accurately account for carbon emissions.

Accurately accounting for carbon emissions is critical to becoming a green port. To effectively reduce your carbon footprint, you need to audit energy consumption and identify areas for improvement.

Collecting and analyzing data on energy use across your facilities and operations requires practical monitoring systems, data management processes, and carbon accounting tools. Once a baseline is established, a route map can be drawn up to decarbonise your operations in the most cost-effective way. Support can be given to build capability and capacity where needed, as well as to track and report emissions reductions.

Enabling Green Ports Series: Tackling the Challenge of Energy Security

This FREE webinar kicks off a 3-part series on Enabling Green Ports. In this first webinar, we will tackle the challenges of energy security.

Energy security is one of the key challenges ports face in their journey to net zero. As the 2022 international energy price spike showed, external factors can cause operating costs to surge. Renewables have the benefit of being nationally or locally based, reducing reliance on global energy markets. Ports are ideally placed to develop their own renewable generating capacity. However, renewables are ‘intermittent’, in line with fluctuating daily and seasonal weather patterns. This calls for energy storage and microgrid management.

Smart Ports Leverage Intelligent Video

Explore top use cases ports can implement to benefit from applying AI-powered computer vision and OCR to live video feeds from cellular-connected/5G security cameras. Showcasing the value of what this trio can do within port security, container management & asset tracking, and real-time digital twins.

Intelligent cameras that can stream high-quality live video to which AI-driven technologies can be applied are becoming increasingly valuable for multiple purposes, including port security, container tracking, gate management, and the development of real-time digital twins. Security cameras can easily recognize faces for frictionless access or capture a container’s information and track it as it moves from ship to shore to hinterland transport and provide real-time intelligence on the state of up-to-the minute port conditions, as long as they are connected with secure, seamless, and ultra-high bandwidth connectivity. In this webinar, learn how private cellular networks enable multiple use cases in securing and optimizing port operations with 5G/LTE cameras and explore which ones ports can implement first to get the most value from applying AI-powered computer vision to their video data.
