CIPRE Opening Keynote session

4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

It is the interoperability between independent critical national infrastructures that is the catalyst for multiple failures in the so called cascade effect. As more infrastructure becomes increasingly interdependent, how do we identify the weaknesses to enhance resilience across industries to prevent and/or mitigate the effects of a natural disaster or man-made attack? How should the […]

9:00 am - 10:30 am

Planning and preparation is the key to ensuring that CI and venue operators have the right equipment, processes and procedures in place to respond in the event of an emergency. Coordination and information sharing is essential for situational awareness and can improve the planning process. How do we better coordinate and co-operate to enhance protection […]

11:15 am - 12:30 pm

As we rely more and more heavily on satellites for communications, navigation, observation and security/defence, the requirement to ensure that space based systems are both secure and resilient becomes more urgent. Government networks and systems need to lead security and resilience across agencies and departments for confidence throughout the CI sectors and communities. What impact […]

2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Sectors such as Chemicals, Nuclear and Water/Wastewater are as much at threat from an attack as a threat they pose that could include CBRNE agents in terrorist attacks against CI. The convergence of biological and cyber sector issues also characterises an evolving frontier in health security, and mitigation of such attacks is as much of […]

4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Securing the digital infrastructure. Information technology is responsible for such a large portion of our workforce, business operations and access to information and data, Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP) through cybersecurity and network security, is vital to protect information assets. Recent ransomware attacks and other threats, such as Malware, Stuxnet, etc and the continued cyber […]

9:00 am - 10:20 pm

The ever changing nature of threats, whether natural, through climate change, or man-made through terrorism activities and insider threats, and coupled together with the latest challenges with cyber attacks from many directions, creates the need to continually review and update policies, practices and technologies to meet these growing demands. But what are those emerging threats, […]

11:15 am - 12:30 pm

The energy sector has become the most critical of sectors. Without power, driven by oil, gas and renewable energies, all other CI stops. Recent cyber attacks on the energy sector, as well as natural hazards, from hurricanes in the Gulf to fires in California, gives much room for thought on how we best protect our […]

2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Communications is key to any community and its infrastructure assets has become increasingly threatened. Without communications, business will be lost, and any emergency coordination would be a disaster. The internet has become a vital part of communications for all. Protection of communication assets and their resilience is vital for businesses, government and all sectors of […]

4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

The movement of goods and people is vital to a local and national thriving economy. Without a safe, secure and resilient transport network, an economy will crumble. The transport network, from rail, road, air and sea, is at threat from cyber attacks, terrorist threats and natural hazards and its protection and resilience is key for […]

9:00 am - 10:30 am

Being prepared for the changing threat environment can benefit greatly in mitigating its impact on infrastructure and the broader community, ensuring resilience, safety and security. How can we counter these emerging physical and cyber threats to minimise loss of service and financial impact?

11:15 am - 12:30 pm

How to we develop and plan the best resilience strategies within our CI community? Through discpline in information sharing and making infrastructure preparedness personal, we can help to build resilience into our infrastructures that benefit the whole community. This session will provide comprehensive insights into the latest advancements and challenges in Business Continuity (BC) planning.

9:00 am - 10:30 am

What are some of the latest and future technologies, from ground surveillance, space based or cyber technology, to predict or detect the wide range of potential threats to CNI.

11:15 am - 12:30 pm

An insider threat is a perceived danger to your company that originates from individuals who work there, such as current or former employees, contractors, or business partners, who have inside knowledge of the company’s security procedures, data, and computer systems. The main objectives of malevolent insider threats are espionage, fraud, intellectual property theft, and sabotage, […]

2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

A deeper look at the current range of Horizon Europe Critical Infrastructure Protection & Resilience projects and research programmes across Europe that are designed to enhance critical infrastructures and understandings for adapting policies and adopting best practices.
