In a previous Thought Leadership webinar we considered the protection of the national infrastructure from a physical security point of view, here we consider it from the viewpoint of cyber. Clearly, attacks take different forms, and there have been some high profile examples, such as the ransomware attack on healthcare, EMA (European Medicines Agency), the recent Colonial Pipeline Co incidents to name but two. But what is the response looking like? Criminologists have discussed an on-going war between attackers and defenders with each one improving in response to the marginal gains of the other. So who leads in this important area now? What is the current balance between a predominantly preventive approach and a more adaptive and predictive security that we understand is increasingly important for building (operational) resilience? What are the implications of current developments for the wider security sector? This webinar will discuss:
● What are the main cyber threats being faced by the critical infrastructure?
● What are the key trends in preventing attacks and pursing offenders?
● What are the implications and learning points for the wider security sector and recommendation for going forward?
