Past event: Critical National Infrastructure Summit

Protecting the Future of Critical Infrastructure

The future is now, and it's connected. Investment in Critical Infrastructure is higher now than it has been in the past decade. As systems evolve, interoperability and the convergence of cyber and physical security move to the fore. Technology is exposing vulnerabilities in existing security systems, forcing new approaches to enterprise risk management, and upending what we knew about preparedness and resiliency.

It's creating opportunity. What does this investment in critical infrastructure mean for the future of our cities? How can we leverage solutions to overcome siloes in critical infrastructure sectors, and encourage collaborative working in emergency response? What will the future of physical infrastructure protection look like?

The Critical National Infrastructure Summit 2019 will answer these questions. Connect with peers from government, critical infrastructure sectors, and solutions providers to discuss the future of integrated security. Be a part in building a resilient nation for the future, sign up to attend the Critical National Infrastructure Summit today.
