About the Review

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

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.
