CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE PROTECTION & RESILIENCE 6th Edition 2023
Critical Infrastructure Protection Forum – CIP Forum, coming this year to its 6th edition, has already established a solid network of experts on the topic of critical infrastructure protection and its various and complex branches, spreading to so many different vital sectors in society.
At a national level, multiple complex initiatives in relation to Critical Infrastructures Protection & Resilience have been promoted by means of networking and expert-level debates as well as legislative projects, starting with 2016. The high-level international Critical Infrastructure Protection Forum – CIP Forum, which reaches its 6th edition this year, between April 26 – 27, 2023, is one of the most notable initiatives in this field from Romania. During its previous editions, participants came from a large geographical spectrum: Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, Republic of Moldova, Morocco, the Netherlands, Nigeria, Romania, South Africa, Turkey and the United States of America. This diversity of high-level attendants makes a strong case towards the global impact of this forum.
We affirm that the main goal of CIP Forum is to grow awareness, building together trust and facilitate regional and global cooperation on issues related to the protection of critical infrastructures and resilience, by means of high-level networking, sharing best practices and finding adaptive solutions in this everchanging and complex field. CIP Forum also acts as platform of debate on all the newly emerged intersections posed by its field of interest.
