CALL FOR PAPERS NOW OPEN
Abstract submittal deadline – 30th November 2020

Due to the postponed 2020 event, we are delighted to be able to offer you a new opportunity to submit an abstract for consideration for the 2021 conference programme.


CIPRE NEW DATES ANNOUNCED - 11th-13th MAY 2021
As with many events that have had to postpone due to Covid 19, we have been closely monitoring the situation over the last few months.

There have been easing of restrictions taking place and decrease in infections, so we are hopeful that we are starting to move closer to being able to connect again face to face.

Having taken all this into consideration, we have come to the decision that for the safety of our participants and the potential reluctance of organisations and individuals wanting to attend a controlled gathering, we have decided to postpone CIPRE 2020.

With this in mind we have come to a decision that we will be running CIPRE on 11th-13th May 2021 in Bucharest, Romania, with the continued support of the National Institute for Research & Development in Informatics (ICI Bucharest), under the coordination of the Ministry of Communications and Information Society.

We look forward to welcoming you back in May 2021.


2021 Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience Europe (part of European CIP Week) co-hosted by:

The National Institute for Research & Development in Informatics (ICI Bucharest), under the coordination of the Ministry of Communications and Information Society
International Association of CIP Professionals

GREAT EVENT CONCLUDES FOLLOWING INTERESTING, INFORMATIVE DISCUSSIONS AND GREAT NETWORKING



“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.
