Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience North America will bring together leading stakeholders from industry, operators, agencies and governments to collaborate on securing North America.
All Federal department and agency heads are responsible for the identification, prioritization, assessment, remediation, and security of their respective internal critical infrastructure that supports primary mission essential functions. Such infrastructure needs to be addressed in the plans and executed to the requirements of the National Continuity Policy.
The ever changing nature of threats, whether natural through climate change, or man-made through terrorism activities, either physical or cyber-attacks, means the need to continually review and update policies, practices and technologies to meet these demands.
The conference will look at developing on the theme of previous events in helping to create better understanding of the issues and the threats, to help facilitate the work to develop frameworks, good risk management, strategic planning and implementation.
