Description
 
Natural disasters, such as Hurricane Katrina, and terrorist attacks, such as the 2005 bombings in London, highlight the importance of protecting critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) assets and systems vital to the economy or health of the nation. The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) issued the Nat.  Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) in June 2006 (updated in 2009) to provide the approach for integrating the nations CIKR. Because the private sector owns most of the nations CIKR for ex., energy production facilities DHS encourages asset owners and operators to voluntarily participate in surveys or vulnerability assessments of existing security measures at those assets. This includes nationally significant CIKR that DHS designates as high priority. This report assesses the extent to which DHS has (1) taken action to conduct surveys and assessments among highpriority CIKR; (2) shared the results of these surveys and assessments with asset owners or operators; and (3) assessed the effectiveness of surveys and assessments and identified actions taken, if any, to improve them. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
