The cyber security and resilience challenges facing critical national infrastructure are growing ever more complex – legacy industrial control systems weren’t designed with security in mind, emerging smart technologies are presenting new risks and new challenges are emerging as control systems migrate to IP networks. The vulnerabilities of SCADA have been dramatically exposed in recent years, most notably by Stuxnet and Flame. To improve cyber defence of critical national infrastructure government and industry need to collaborate and share information about threats and vulnerabilities.

But how do they do this? How big is the risk to critical national infrastructure? What are the critical controls needed in place for industrial control systems? How ‘national’ is our critical infrastructure, which in many cases is foreign owned and operated? And how do you ensure that sufficient controls are in place? During this session a panel of industry experts will discuss the challenges around securing national infrastructure and provide insight into how to implement an effective cyber security strategy.
