Protecting Critical National Infrastructure from Cyberattacks: the US and UK Experience

17 April 2018 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Chatham House, London


Max Everett, Chief Information Officer, US Department of Energy
Mark Raeburn, CEO and Founder, Context Information Security
Chair: Beyza Unal, Senior Research Fellow, International Security, Chatham House



The cybersecurity of critical national infrastructure has become a prominent topic in today’s security environment. Although there has not yet been a knowingly devastating cyberattack to critical national infrastructure in the developed world, threats have grown exponentially and have become more complex.

At this roundtable, the speakers will  present US and UK best practices on the cybersecurity of critical national infrastructure. The discussion will focus on the energy sector as well as on the nuclear security complex and will cover both the challenges and opportunities ahead, such as in the area of public-private partnerships. 

This roundtable will provide a useful bridge to share expertise between the US and the UK.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
