CSL was recently selected by UK Defence and Security Exports (UKDSE) and the Department for Business and Trade (DBT) to support the production of the latest Government brochure: Securing critical national infrastructure: an introduction to UK capability.

This latest brochure sets out UK industry expertise in helping to improve the physical and cyber security of sites of critical national infrastructure (CNI). As Critical Connectivity experts, supporting thousands of CNI sites across the UK and Europe, CSL was chosen to work alongside these government agencies to produce the brochure.

CSL was selected to collaborate on the brochure, as a market leader and expert in critical communications in the UK. CSL currently supply the UK’s Commercial Fire and Security Industry with secure, managed, resilient connectivity which, despite being the smallest part of most solutions, is the most critical in ensuring that installations are working and provide the protection needed for CNI sites.

CSL also work closely with the BSIA and its members in the security ecosystem to help ensure the security of these critical sectors through their capability. The companies and case studies included are from industry experts and CSL partners, who utilise our IoT expertise to ensure CNI sites across the UK are always secure. The CNI industry includes sectors such as energy, communications, defence, emergency services, finance, food, government, health, transport, water and civil nuclear.

Simon Banks, Founder of CSL and Chairman of the BSIA, provides "The Industry Perspective" on Page 9 of the brochure. Simon comments: "The proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and machine-to-machine (M2M) technology have served the sector extremely well."

CSL's Head of IoT Business Development, Hiran Ravat, worked alongside UKDSE to coordinate the content and was recently commended by Tracy Buckingham, Deputy Director and Head of Security & Cyber Security Exports, during a seminar at the International Security Expo in London.
