Chief of DISA/DoDIN Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Program supports Critical Infrastructure Protection & Resilience North America.
"Critical Infrastructure Protection & Resilience North America (CIPRNA) will be a key discussion between the relevant government agencies, emergency management agencies and operators of CNI to meet the Presidential Policy Directive 21 (PPD-21) - advancing national policy to strengthen and maintain secure, functioning, and resilient critical infrastructure. I have personally attended the European conference and its unique quality of discussion delivers real value to all those involved in the protection and resilience of CNI. We aim for the conference in Orlando this December to deliver equally valuable discussions on the issues and challenges we face. This conference is a wonderful opportunity for the experts from different critical infrastructure sectors and leaders of Local, State and Federal agencies to get together and discuss the most important aspects of North America Critical Infrastructure. We look forward to your support." Fred Ruonavar, Chief DISA/DoDIN Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Program.
There are 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety.
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. This directive supersedes Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7.
Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience North America will be held in Orlando, Florida from the 5-7, December 2017 and will bring together leading stakeholders from industry, operators, agencies and governments to collaborate on securing North America
