It is a matter of urgency that both public and private sectors develop cross-sector responsibility for driving and delivering improved cybersecurity.  21st-century war will begin and end on a keyboard, with critical infrastructure being the first and most significant target for our adversaries. Crippling water, electricity, power supply, transportation, financial and communications infrastructure are key for nation-state opponents, and a playground for hacktivists. 

We invite you to join Cyber Security for Critical Infrastructure conference in Amsterdam on March 26th and 27th at the Crowne Plaza Schiphol. Attendees include CISO’s, IT and Operational Technology directors from the manufacturing, utility, energy, nuclear, maritime, logistics, chemical, financial, telecom, rail, aviation and government sectors. An ideal forum for cross vertical engagement, learning and an opportunity to assess your organisation’s cyber maturity posture.
