The protection of critical infrastructures and critical activities is now widely recognized as an acute security challenge for States and their citizens. The broad range of CBRN hazards, from man-made, natural, accidental to deliberate, and the wide spectrum of risks, from small disturbance to high damage such as significant contamination with extreme consequences, makes the CBRN threat both insidious and penalizing for the operators in charge of those critical infrastructures.
Facing the risks and challenges of CBRN, the HCFDC has deemed useful to match operators’ needs (in particular those submitted to national and/or European legislations) with scientific expertise, as well as with expected outcomes of public policies regarding national security.
The Conference will be held in both French and English, therefore increasing its accessibility to international speakers. It will aim at better defining the nature of CBRN threats, along with addressing potential effective strategies to prevent, mitigate and treat the consequences of CBRN threats. To a larger extent, the objective of HCFDC conference on ‘CBRN and critical infrastructure’ is to foster knowledge and experience sharing among participants for whom this strategic issue might still be new.
During the conference, the HCFDC will organize an exhibition displaying some of the technological solutions provided by Defence & CBRN industries.
CSARN MEMBERS WILL BENEFIT FROM A DELEGATE FEE REDUCTION FROM A 33% REDUCTION TO €100.
