HSD Café: Protecting Critical Infrastructure
A comprehensive approach to the protection of critical infrastructures, such as transportation, energy, telecommunication, water supply, food availability, health, banking and the chemical industry, is becoming increasingly important in relation to the functioning of our societies. Disruption, in any sort, would have a serious impact on the health, safety, security and/or economic well-being of citizens and/or the effective functioning of governments. With the digitilisation of various (industrial) processes and the role governments and private sector play in this field, the security of such infrastructures is becoming increasingly complex. Security measures that were sufficient in the past are running out of steam. What are the best ways for the public and private sector to cooperate? What are the solutions for the future?
The HSD Café is set up as follows:
From 15:30h until 16:00h, the registration-procedure will take place, in which visitors will receive their name badge. Please make sure you arrive on time, as we would like to start at 16:00h.
From 16:00h until 16:30h, the following experts will share their insights on the matter through brief presentations:
Reinoud Weijman (AET) will highlight the cooperation between AET and Nedap, who joined forces to protect critical infrastructure. Where Nedap focusses on physical access control, AET’s expertise concerns IT-security solutions.
Max Remerie is the new program manager at HSD and involved in the National Cyber Testbed. He will not only briefly introduce the Testbed-project, but also explore the opportunities for the HSD network.
At 16:30h, the brief presentations will be followed by a discussion, in which the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their views.
From 17:00h onwards, the bar is open for drinks and there will be ample opportunity to network.
About the HSD Café
The HSD Cafés are organised on every first and third Thursday of each month (except on public holidays). From cyber to critical infrastructure, each year 20 sessions will be organised around security topics relevant for businesses, governments, and knowledge institutions. In the first hour (16.00-17.00) of each HSD Café, an expert will briefly present a security topic, dilemma, or innovation, followed by an informal discussion. The second part of the HSD Café (17.00-17.45) will consist of drinks and a possibility to network.
The HSD Cafés provide an excellent opportunity to meet (potential) business partners, bring along your contacts, expand your knowledge, and shape the debate on key security issues of the future. Tell us what you think. Let your voice count, expand your network, and join the debate.
