The Meridian Process aims to exchange ideas and initiate actions for the cooperation of governmental bodies on Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP) issues globally. It explores the benefits and opportunities of cooperation between governments and provides an opportunity to share best practices from around the world. The Meridian Process emerged from the first Meridian Conference, hosted in the UK in 2005 and the subsequent conferences held in Hungary, Sweden, Singapore, the United States of America, Taiwan, Qatar, Germany, Argentina, Japan, and Spain in October 2015.
