Securing critical infrastructure across ASEAN
As we move into a new era of security threats, we find our world more uncertain.
From the changing weather systems, delivering unusual and dramatic storm patterns, to new and dangerous threats from terrorist activities and organised crime (both physical and cyber threats), our national assets / infrastructure that keep our daily lives secure and economies buoyant, are increasingly under threat.
The ASEAN Economic Community wishes to see a region of equitable economic development and be fully integrated into the global economy. The only way to achieve this is through closer collaboration on areas of critical national and regional importance. Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) is the very essence of economic development.
Our governments, agencies (security, emergency and others) and operators have an important role in ensure the protection, security and resilience of key infrastructure and national assets.
Critical Infrastructure Protection & Resilience Asia delivers key topics of discussion on the protection of ASEAN’s critical infrastructure and will bring together the organisations from government, agencies and industry players responsible for such collaboration.
Co-hosted by the Department of Disaster Prevention & Mitigation (under the Ministry of Interior) and the Ministry of Information Communication & Technology, supported by the Ministry of Transport, Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau and other key organisations in the national security and resilience sector, Critical Infrastructure Protection & Resilience Asia will play an important role for securing ASEAN.
We invite you to participate in the conference and join in this high level discussion, to learn, explore and collaborate with colleagues from across ASEAN.
The conference programme brings together leading international speakers, experts in their field, looking at a range of key topics that can assist with your strategic and tactical planning and thinking in how better to secure and protect your key assets.
From the physical infrastructure of power plants, telecommunications systems, transport networks and vital regional assets such as the Trans ASEAN Gas Pipeline and ASEAN Power Grid, to the critical information and data held by organisations, including operators of CNI, banks/financial institutions, governments and corporations, Critical Infrastructure Protection & Resilience Asia will address and highlight important issues, such as the emerging threats, including cyber attacks, to resilience measures that can mitigate a disaster.
We look forward to welcoming you to Critical Infrastructure Protection & Resilience Asia on 5th-6th October 2016 in Bangkok, Thailand.
