About the Review

Welcome to the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Review website.

Today’s interdependent and interconnected world requires joint efforts and holistic approaches to the growing number of attacks against critical infrastructure assets, which have increasingly become a necessity in order to address ever-evolving convergent threats to our economy, security and well-being.

Delta Business Media announces the debut of Critical Infrastructure Protection Review, the go-to destination for the latest news, insights and expert knowledge, which will assist governments, and the public and private sectors to improve the security and resilience of vital critical infrastructures and strengthen their preparedness to recover from the physical and cyber attacks.

With an initial subscriber base encompassing key decision makers and professionals from the defence, law enforcement, transportation, energy, banking, telecommunication and other critical sectors, the publishers aim to enhance cooperation and provide an effective information-sharing platform, which will engage top-security leaders through news, articles and events.
