4:00pm-5:30pm – Plenary Session 1: Developing Greater Resilience in CNI
Hurricanes, Tornado’s and Flooding are a certainty, the only uncertainty is exactly where and when. Cyber security attacks can also now be added to the list of certainties, as they are now a daily occurrence. Man-made disasters and large scale terrorist attacks on CNI are deemed likely, so building resilience into our systems and services is crucial if we are to mitigate the impact on our security, economy, national public health and safety.
