What's the Buzz in the Critical Infrastructure Protection, Cybersecurity and Resiliency Planning Space?

A highly distinguished panel of experts will explore and discuss the government requirements for Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP), Cybersecurity and Resiliency Planning. This forum will help educate you about government CIP and Cybersecurity initiatives, responsibilities, public private partnerships, and where the opportunities lie for private sector companies to support federal, state and local governments in mitigating their risk by planning for All Hazards events.

Critical infrastructure is the foundation of what enables our society to function every day, yet few understand the dependencies and interdependencies of CIP. Critical infrastructures are the complex and highly interdependent systems, networks, and assets that provide the services essential for our economy to function. Over 85 percent of the Nation’s critical infrastructure is owned by the private sector, and with no single overarching body managing this infrastructure, the task of protecting critical infrastructure is daunting. In the past we’ve focused our protective programs on natural and man-made disasters, we now confront asymmetrical terrorist and cyber threats, and the challenge is greater than ever.

Governments must rely on private sector coordination, support and ingenuity to partner and provide solutions to combat these “All Hazards” threats.
