Critical Infrastructure Resilience: The Evolution of Policy and Programs and Issues for Congress
John D. Moteff (au)
In 2006, the Critical Infrastructure Task Force of the Homeland Security Advisory Council initiated a public policy debate arguing that the governmentäó»s critical infrastructure policies were focused too much on protecting assets from terrorist attacks and not focused enough on improving the resilience of assets against a variety of threats. Critical infrastructure are those assets the loss of which would result in great harm to the nationäó»s security, economy, health and safety, and morale. They include assets necessary to generate and distribute such basic goods and services such as electricity, drinking water, telecommunications, banking and finance, etc. Resilience refers to the ability of a system to resist, absorb, recover from, or successfully adapt to a change in environment or conditions.
