Partnering for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience

Partnering for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience (hereafter referred to as the National Plan) guides the US national effort to manage risk to the Nation's critical infrastructure. The National Plan identifies the community involved in managing risks to critical infrastructure as partnerships among owners and operators; Federal, State, local, tribal, and territorial governments; regional entities; non-profit organizations; and academia. This diverse community is called to manage risks to physical and cyber critical infrastructure through (1) identifying, deterring, detecting, disrupting, and preparing for threats and hazards to the Nation's critical infrastructure; (2) reducing vulnerabilities of critical assets, systems, networks; (3) mitigating the potential consequence to critical infrastructure of incidents or adverse events that occur. The National Plan encourages the leverage of the full spectrum of capabilities, expertise, and experience as well as the sharing of relevant and actionable information.
