The UK is faced with many new threats which could damage the infrastructure of the country, especially in terms of its critical infrastructure. These threats include the risk to individuals, to communities, and to businesses. Thus there needs to be an integrated approach to understanding these risks, and to mitigate them wherever possible. A key factor is for a range of domains to collaborate effectively, and to co-ordinate their activities, especially in defining the important threats, and how information can be gained to prevent any future events.
The Symposium is delivered with the support of Scottish Enterprise.
