Help Net Security: Lack of Transparency, Systemic Risks Weaken National Cybersecurity Preparedness

What is critical infrastructure? If you ask 5 different people, you may receive 5 different answers. The term critical infrastructure has lost much of its meaning as a differentiator of private entities and currently defines sectors from energy to commercial facilities:

Defining critical infrastructure is the backbone of risk prioritization for cybersecurity activities. Much of what government’s rely on to conduct essential functions and maintain national and economic security as well as community well-being is outside the direct operational control of governments and can be thought of as critical infrastructure. Therefore, ensuring the security and resilience of that infrastructure, is a joint public-private effort.
