Call For Public-Private Partnerships On Critical Infrastructure Security

BAE Systems Applied Intelligence : 22 November, 2011  (Technical Article)
BAE Systems Detica Technical Director comments on US water utility plant cyber attack in connection with the advantages of striking partnerships for protection between the public and private sectors
Call For Public-Private Partnerships On Critical Infrastructure Security
In reaction to the news of a purported cyber attack on a major water utility facility near Springfield, Illinois, Henry Harrison, Technical Director at BAE Systems Detica, says that the news serves as a reminder of the importance of collaboration between Government and private sector in the UK, to ensure that appropriate cyber security policies are in place for protection of the UK’s own critical infrastructure.

Henry Harrison, Technical Director at BAE Systems Detica, comments: "Whatever the true details of this event, it is a timely reminder that it is private businesses who form the front line in any cyber attack against our critical infrastructure. At a national level, what is critical is that government and industry share a common understanding about the true level of risk and the right level of security to apply.

Getting that level right is about balancing the costs of better security against the risk we're prepared to accept. In the end, any improvements in security will need to be paid for, but there is still significant debate to be had about the way in which those costs will get passed on to taxpayers and consumers"
