November 12, 2020
John Felker, former Assistant Director, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency brings significant public-private sector relationship building expertise to the Maritime Transportation System Information Sharing and Analysis Center’s (MTS-ISAC) nonprofit, community focused mission.
Multiple maritime and port security agencies announced a collaborative initiative, the “Maritime Security Resilience Alliance” that has unified advancing global Maritime security resilience (physical, cyber, cognitive – disinformation and misinformation) by accelerating information sharing, coordinated response and adoption of best practices supported by education.
The Maritime Transportation System Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MTS-ISAC) was formed as a nonprofit by a group of U.S.-based maritime critical infrastructure stakeholders to promote cybersecurity information sharing throughout the community.
In December, Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, provided training for 62 Libyan Coast Guard and Navy officers aboard San Giorgio, a vessel taking part in the EU Naval Force Operation Sophia.
