On November 6th the third Grand Conference will take place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The aim of The Grand Conference is to make the critical infrastructure leadership and their eco-systems aware of the importance of the cyber resilience for their businesses and for society as a whole. Cyber resilience is a precondition for the digital transformation of our society. This year’s theme will be ‘An Executive Dialogue on Cyber Risk’. The Grand Conference 2014 will form an interactive platform for countries and organizations willing to share good practices and contribute to a resilient digital society.
On the evening before the Grand Conference at a networking reception hosted by the Mayor of Rotterdam, Ahmed Aboutaleb, a number of organizations are invited to sign the World Economic Forum’s Principles for Cyber Resilience (PCR). CIONET has been asked to sign and will be represented by Managing Director and Founder, Hendrik Deckers. Signing the PCR facilitates leading by doing and offers the opportunity to show executive leadership. CIONET is committed to support and promote the PCR as CIONET members are often in a leadership position responsible for the Cyber resilience of their organization. By signing the Principles we create an entry point to working with the World Economic Forum’s network of members, improving global cyber resilience, fully in line with CIONET’s objective to share knowledge and best practice relevant to our members. Is your organization Cyber resilient? Please refer to the WEF document ‘Risk and Responsibility in a Hyperconnected World. Pathways to Global Cyber Resilience’ to assess how you can support your organization. Members who wish to attend the networking reception, please contact Frits Bussemaker, Partner CIONET.
