The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) is the UK Government’s National Technical Authority for Physical and Personnel protective security advice. CPNI are part of the National Security apparatus and they have a long history of providing advice on securing critical infrastructure and working with the Police to advise on the protection of crowded spaces and publicly accessible locations.

This session will show the range of malicious threats facing the public and private sector and the vulnerabilities that can be mitigated by forethought and proportionate countermeasures that enable rather than inhibit the desired innovation.

CPNI’s work also covers securing sensitive technologies,digital engineering, open data initiatives, advanced manufacturing processes, automotive and intelligent transport system security and embedding security in to the development ofsmart city initiatives.

They sponsor and author and contribute to numerous standards and a host of extra guidance and templates are available from their website. They have also developed boilerplate and bespoke terms for commercial use to help instill security-mindedness and security practices in the supply chain.
