International Law Enforcement Critical Infrastructure Symposium

07 July 2014 - 10 July 2014 - Miami, USA

Increased integration between law enforcement and the public and private sectors to secure and protect critical infrastructure is the focus of this joint FBI and INTERPOL symposium.

‘Critical infrastructure’ refers to the physical and virtual assets, systems and networks, which if incapacitated or destroyed would have a devastating effect on security, the economy and public health and safety. These include energy, ground and air transport, water, stadiums and maritime safety.

The four-day event brings together senior government, law enforcement and industry officials in order to discuss common issues and share best practice.

With public vigilance an important component of critical infrastructure safety, the symposium also draws attention to INTERPOL’s  Turn Back Crime campaign which highlights the role the general public can play in making the world safer.

The symposium is supported by a number of US government agencies including the US Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration, the National Transportation Safety Board, the Federal Aviation Administration and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
