Joelle Dvir quoted in MarineLog article "Cybercrime on the Seas"


McDonald Hopkins Associate Joelle Dvir was quoted in the recent MarineLog article "Cybercrime on the Seas" by Maura Keller.

In the piece, Keller writes:

“Focusing on maritime cybersecurity is crucial not only due to the rising attacks, but given how impactful the seas are in our daily life,” Dvir says. “Ninety percent of trade is by water and nearly 100% of transoceanic data traffic is transmitted under water through undersea cables.
