Critical infrastructures (energy, information technology and communications, banking, transportation, public government services, etc.) are now more vital to modern society. Citizens, businesses and governments all rely on an array of interlinked physical and information infrastructures to satisfy their needs and perform their daily operations. At the same time, these infrastructures are becoming increasingly interdependent, such that failure of one of them can often propagate and result in domino effects. Recent dramatic episodes, from 9/11 to the Madrid train bombings, the April 2010 ash cloud the power cuts in Korea in 2011, and the cyber-attacks have highlighted the need for a comprehensive, internationally coordinated policy for the protection of critical infrastructures. For the purposes of this report, we define critical infrastructure as infrastructure whose failure would result in substantial damage to society and/or the economy.
