Today’s critical infrastructures have become more and more complex and interconnected, and this evolution process will continue. On the other hand, the increasing complex interrelation among such critical systems creates new security vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious users to compromise sensitive data, other systems or the whole network with a tremendous impact on the economy and the society.

The CONNECT University brings together European Commission and external experts working on strengthening cybersecurity in critical infrastructures to discuss this topic. The roles of the private sector and the public authorities will be highlighted. The debate will mainly focus on examples from the energy sector, financial services and transport infrastructure. During the session the European Commission experts will briefly present the latest EU’s policy and research initiatives in the field of cybersecurity in critical infrastructures. This event seeks to introduce the topic and to initiate a wider twitter debate (use #ICT2018) on cybersecurity which will culminate in the ICT 2018 plenary ‘Secure Digital Economy and Society’, taking place on 5 December.

The event is available to the public via web-streaming.

This session is part of a series of events around cybersecurity organized by the CONNECT University to celebrate the European Cyber Security Month 2018 (ECSM 2018). The European Commission has planned various online and offline activities to engage with citizens and stakeholders and spread the ECSM 2018 message 'Cyber security is a shared responsibility – Stop. Think. Connect!'.
