– Do you understand the emerging and future threats your infrastructure faces from both physical and cyber security perspectives?
– Are you and your systems prepared for the on-coming threat and attack

– How could European standardisation assist the industry in enhancing security solutions?
– What are the key enablers to making operator and agency cooperation work and how can improvements be made in the current practices for more efficient delivery?

The unique two-track conference programme delivers a leading line up of international experts to discuss securing Europe’s critical infrastructure, 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
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.

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.

Are you a CIP manufacturer, supplier or service provider?
Well make sure your company included on the Critical Infrastructure Protection listing!

Save the 2nd-3rd March 2016 in your diary for the next gathering of the CIP and CIIP industry, where you can meet with international colleagues and counterparts for excellent information sharing and networking opportunities.
