Cybercrime and the security of critical infrastructures
24 SeptemberSep 2020 15:00 - 15:45
The COVID-19 crisis has exposed once more the vulnerability of critical infrastructures, as cybercriminals targeted health-care facilities around the world. In his Roadmap for Digital Cooperation, the UN Secretary-General stressed that 'civilian hospitals and critical health-care infrastructure have to be inviolable [...] at all times'. This also applies to other critical infrastructures which are essential to the functioning of economies and the well-being, safety, and security of individuals (e.g. electrical grids, transportation systems, water delivery systems, financial institutions, etc.). What policies are in place across the SEE+ region to protect critical infrastructures from cyber-attacks? And what is missing? How can public and private stakeholders strengthen their cooperation at the national and regional level to prevent cyber-attacks and provide assistance when bad actors compromise critical infrastructures?
