CyberTalk on Securing Critical Infrastructure and Launch of the Sectoral Cybersecurity Maturity Model (SCMM)
The World Bank’s Digital Development (DD) Global Practice cordially invites you to a CyberTalk on “Securing Critical Infrastructure” including the launch of its new Sectoral Cybersecurity Maturity Model (SCMM). This CyberTalk is part of the World Bank’s ongoing Cyber Resilience Event Series and a broader Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Learning Day.
The SCMM is part of the World Bank’s larger efforts to mainstream cyber resilience into the development agenda and support client countries in securing their increasingly digitalized and interconnected critical infrastructure sectors. The SCMM was designed as a global digital public good specifically to help relevant stakeholders examine critical sectors of the economy to identify and analyze gaps in cybersecurity practices, capabilities, and resources within a sector and develop a roadmap to gradually mature the sector’s ability to manage cyber risks and address the continually evolving cyber threat environment.
The event will include opening remarks by government counterparts from countries where the SCMM was piloted and a keynote address on the importance of protecting critical infrastructure from cybersecurity-related risks. Following the presentation of the SCMM by the World Bank DD team and Tel Aviv University’s Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center, a panel of senior cybersecurity experts from partner organizations will discuss potential use cases for the SCMM methodology and share insights on key challenges, lessons, and recommendations to secure critical infrastructure.
The event also aims to build on existing partnerships and catalyze new engagements with both client countries and other relevant organizations to scale up CIP efforts.
