VIEW THIS INFORMATIVE PANEL DISCUSSION ABOUT THE CYBER THREATS TO CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE.
On October 4, INSA held a panel discussion on cyber threats to critical infrastructure, with a particular focus on the energy and transportation sectors and the dependencies between the two. The panel’s government and industry experts explored these sectors’ cyber threats and vulnerabilities, assess existing public-private partnerships, and identify strengths and weaknesses of response mechanisms. Among the topics panelists addressed were:
The intersection of cyber and physical threats as they affect US critical infrastructure.
Shortfalls in authorities between federal, state, local and industry elements involved in responding to cyber-attacks.
Roles, responsibilities and government-industry coordination procedures during a cyber event that affects two critical infrastructure sectors.
The means by which threat information is shared between government and industry, as well as between infrastructure sectors.
How government and industry can work together to “harden” US critical infrastructure against future attacks.
