“I found the conference very interesting, made some helpful contacts and overall, and feel that the whole three days were time very well spent.”
Stuart Haylock, Managing Director, Airborne Industries

The unique two-track conference programme delivered a leading line up of international experts to discuss securing Europe’s critical infrastructure and major venues, from both physical and cyber perspectives.

Critical Infrastructure Protection
With much focus on convergence, the CIP track of the programme delivers discussions to review the potential threats to critical infrastructure, smart construction and building in security  resilience, and a focus on ‘Transport, Energy & Telecomms Infrastructure’, three key elements of a countries economic activity.

Critical Information Infrastructure Protection / Cyber Security
With the ever increasing threat from cyber attacks on critical infrastructure, the information and data stored and used by CNI systems and operators can be more crucial than the system itself. CIIP is becoming ever more important as part of the cyber security strategy of an organisation or CNI operator.

With a unique conference programme set-up, providing enhanced opportunities for discussions between the physical infrastrucutre and cyber security, who need to work together to mitigate threats and attacks in our combined plenary sessions, as well as focussed discussions within each discipline in the individual CIP and CIIP tracks.

No major city in the world is without its own major events venues, such as sports stadia and expo centres, and these are routinely fully integrated with that cities transport infrastructure. Sporting venues therefore share many of the same security and resilience challenges as the transport hubs with which they are linked. It is with this in mind that this year we have decided to include event venues within the programme, providing a holistic approach to largescale people security, safety and movement.

The ever changing nature of threats, whether natural through climate change, or man-made through terrorism activities, either physical or cyber attacks, means the need to continually review and update policies, practices and technologies to meet these growing demands.
