Critical Infrastructure Protection

Critical Infrastructure Protection
Critical infrastructures are those physical and information technology facilities, networks, services and assets which, if disrupted or destroyed, would have a serious impact on the health, safety, security or economic well-being of citizens or the effective functioning of governments. Critical Infrastructure may include installations and services in the area of transportation, energy and water supply, communications and also in other sectors like, for example, financial sector and healthcare. Such infrastructures are now heavily dependent on information infrastructure, which is developed and operated with the use of standard components like information systems, thus making them vulnerable to accidental or intentional security incidents.
Since Critical Infrastructures (CIs) are businesses, with their own specific principles and priorities, we look into CI security in a similar way, as we do with enterprises. The business approach to security requires that the risk assessment be carried out simultaneously at the business, application and technology layers and that it accounts for dependencies within and between systems.
The objective of the OKIT methodology for enterprise security governance and management is to define guidelines for the development of efficient, cost-effective and adaptable Critical Information Protection Systems while considering security as a business process.
