Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience Europe, 2014 Launched!

Attacks on critical infrastructure sites are a favoured target for terrorist groups, for good reason. Many offer what is seen by the terrorist as a soft target, that is, maximum effect with minimal chance of interdiction. The potential effects in terms of damage, the hugely detrimental economic impact, disruption of normal daily life and resulting publicity, can far outweigh the terrorist organisations commitment in both manpower and risk.

Man made and natural disasters such as industrial accidents, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, storms, pandemics, solar flares and volcanic ash clouds pose an even greater danger to civil society.

The European Commission has adopted a communication on Critical Infrastructure Protection in the fight against terrorism, enhancing European prevention, preparedness and response in the event of terrorist attacks involving critical infrastructures. The European Programme for Critical Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP) considers measures that will enhance the level of protection of infrastructure against external threats, with the Operator Security Plan for all infrastructures designated as European critical.

Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience Europe will bring together leading stakeholders from industry, operators, agencies and governments to collaborate on securing Europe. The conference will look at developing existing national or international legal and technical frameworks, integrating good risk management, strategic planning and implementation.

The conference will deliver discussion and thought provoking presentations on many of the serious critical infrastructure protection, management and security issues and challenges facing the government and industry.

The conference and expo will cover all aspects of critical infrastructure protection from physical and cyber security to resilience planning and implementation.

Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience Europe will be held in London 12-13th February 2014
Call for Papers is currently open. Please submit your abstract on the Abstract Submittal Form here...
