Critical Infrastructure Protection & Resilience Europe

Programme – Day Two



9:00am-12.30pm – IET Round Table Discussions
Chair: Senior Representative, Institution of Engineering & Technology

The Threats to CNI

In a world where everything is connected in some way, shape or form; where the Internet of Things (IoT) has risen in prominence and; where the proliferation of and dependence on mobile devices is pervasive, having the necessary cyber and physical security to sustain and secure our critical infrastructure is now more important than ever before.

Moreover, the digital technologies which increasingly enable our financial, communications, utilities, security and defence infrastructure may, at the same time, pose a significant threat to those systems themselves.

Through sharing exemplars from specific Industries, we would like individuals to share their experiences with each other, to understand commonalities and to learn best practise from their own perspectives (ether in Government, Academia or Industry). What are the learnings from one sector to another?

Leaders from across the key IET Sectors (IT & Comms, Energy, Manufacturing, Transport and Built Environment) will provide a quick introduction at the start of the session and then join the attendees to continue discussions.

Further information to be supplied by the organisers (whether we hold it as cabaret style) or open up to audience members on the floor.

12.30pm-2:00pm – Delegate Networking Lunch

2:00pm-3:30pm – Session 3a: Emerging and Future Threats on CNI
Threats to critical national infrastructure come in many forms, whether it is UAV’s, disruption of GPS/GNSS signals or flood waters. Identifying new and potential threats is crucial to enabling governments, law enforcement, operators and stakeholders to take the necessary steps to mitigate against possible disruption.Senior Representative, Critical Infrastructure Division, EUROPOL*
