What is critical infrastructure?
There are 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof. For more information, visit www.dhs.gov/critical-infrastructure-sectors or contact IDHS's Critical Infrastructure Protection Program Manager at jmchugh@dhs.in.gov.
