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.
Launch of Preliminary Conference Programme
Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience Europe announces the preliminary conference programme for the 2015 conference to be held in The Hague, Netherlands on 4th-5th March 2015.
The conference programme delivers a leading line up of international experts to discuss securing Europe’s critical infrastructure.
New for 2015 – 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.
