Yesterday, The Kosovar Centre for Security Studies (KCSS) took part in the webinar “Building Cybersecurity and Resilience into Critical Infrastructure in the Western Balkans”. The panelists of this session were Florina Hajdini from Deloitte Kosova, Anne Robbins from Deloitte, Drinor Selmanaj from Cyber Academy/Sentry Cybersecurity and Mentor Vrajolli from KCSS.
The discussion raised a wide variety of topics such as the risks of unsecured critical infrastructure, the key stakeholders and who has the power to affect change in relation to critical infrastructure, actions countries and/or institutions can take to bolster the capacity of their cyber workforce and ways to effectively use international funds in the cyber field.
Panelists highlighted that defining critical infrastructure is challenging, mentioning that both the private and the public sector should have their own definition of CI. A part of securing CI is defining roles and assigning authorities before an incident occurs and that cyber incidents must be treated as an emergency.
This webinar was organized by Deloitte in cooperation with KCSS and Sentry Cybersecurity.
