Critical infrastructure has always been subject to risks associated with natural disasters and man-made threats. Such incidents have and can harm, incapacitate, or even destroy operations, services, and facilities. In addition, in today’s world, critical infrastructure faces fast-growing cyber risks. As more and more information and communications technologies are integrated with critical infrastructure operations, they become “better” targets for cyber threats. In our globalized world, such threat actors can be local, national, transnational, private, or even state-sponsored. To prevent, mitigate, and control attacks in order to protect their assets and operations, critical infrastructure operators must leverage robust IT and security systems as well as cyber intelligence tools. Rather than focusing on one type of threat or hazard at a time, such as cyber threats or terrorism, organizations must identify all threats and hazards that pose the greatest risks to critical infrastructure and allow for more effective and efficient planning and resource allocation.
