The IFIP Working Group 11.10 on Critical Infrastructure Protection is an active international community of scientists, engineers and practitioners dedicated to advancing the state of the art of research and practice in the field of critical infrastructure protection. The ERNCIP Office participated in the activities of the 9th IFIP WG 11.10 International Conference on Critical Infrastructure Protection which took place on the 16th-18th March 2015, in Arlington, Virginia, USA. The ERNCIP Office representative chaired two sessions on “Cyber-Physical Systems” and on “Critical Infrastructure Protection”, respectively. During the “Risk Assessment and Mitigation” session, scientific work performed by JRC and other collaborators was also presented. The presentation focused on the application of centrality measures to identify the optimum risk mitigation strategy for critical infrastructure dependency graphs. A highlight of the conference was the panel discussion on “Critical Infrastructure Protection Education and Training”. During the panel, the contributions of the ERNCIP Office and Academic Committee towards CIP training of European professionals were mentioned. This contributes to the on-going collaboration on CIP education and training between the ERNCIP Office and the Center for Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security (CIP/HS) at the George Mason University (USA).
