Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience North America (CIPRNA) has announced its rescheduled dates of 19th-21st October 2021 in New Orleans, USA, with the support of Infragard Louisiana.
Postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic CIPRNA will reconvene in New Orleans in October 2021 to continue the important discussions for governments, agencies, operator/owners and stakeholders for collaboration in securing and protecting America's critical infrastructure, and are currently inviting abstracts for consideration for presentation in the programme.
CIPRNA is the premier conference discussion for securing North America's critical infrastructure.
Presidential Policy Directive 21 (PPD-21): Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience advances a national policy to strengthen and maintain secure, functioning, and resilient critical infrastructure.
The Nation’s critical infrastructure provides the essential services that underpin American society. Proactive and coordinated efforts are necessary to strengthen and maintain secure, functioning, and resilient critical infrastructure – including assets, networks, and systems – that are vital to public confidence and the Nation’s safety, prosperity, and well-being.
Critical infrastructure must be secure and able to withstand and rapidly recover from all hazards. Achieving this will require integration with the national preparedness system across prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery.
