Singapore Norway Maritime Digital and Cyber Forum

Innovation Norway, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Singapore, and Norwegian Business Association Singapore host the inaugural Singapore Norway Maritime Digital and Cyber Forum on 1 November 2022. We organise the forum in conjunction with the One Ocean Expedition.

The forum will focus on communications and cyber-security, two important areas within maritime digitalisation and of increasing interest to the Singapore and Norway maritime communities.

The forum will showcase key trends in the maritime sector in these areas as well as industry developments and upcoming government plans in Singapore and Norway.

Consequently, we aim to showcase key technology developments, including 5G, VHF Data Exchange system (VDES), vessel traffic services (VTS) system and cyber-security solutions.

Through participating in Singapore Norway Maritime Digital and Cyber Forum, you can:

· Learn about upcoming initiatives and directions from Singapore and Norway government agencies on maritime communications and cybersecurity

· Learn about the requirements of vessel owners in the areas of maritime communications and cybersecurity

· Learn about the new technological developments in maritime communications and cybersecurity

· Explore collaborations- partnerships- and business opportunities within maritime communications and cyber security.

· Network with selected industry players and stakeholders over lunch session


The maritime technology market is in tremendous growth. To illustrate, a report by Inmarsat expects Singapore’s maritime technology market revenue to double from US$2.4 billion in 2021 to US$4.8 billion by 2030.

The maritime industry expects 5G and satellite technologies to open almost infinite possibilities in maritime communication. The introduction of smart

drones for real-time monitoring, ship-shore communication, vessel traffic management, and just-in-time operations are just a few examples.

Parallelly, as maritime processes digitalise, more nodes are opened that could be exploited, including those with capabilities to mount sophisticated attacks on critical infrastructure. Since 1st January 2021, ISM Code supported by the IMO Resolution MSC.428(98), requires shipowners and managers to officially address cyber security as a risk in their safety management systems. Singapore and Norway are both actively stepping up efforts in maritime cybersecurity.
