Editors: Frederick H. Lupul
Book Description:
Protecting the critical infrastructure and key resources (CI/KR) of the United States is essential to the Nationís security, public health and safety, economic vitality, and way of life. Attacks on CI/KR could significantly disrupt the functioning of government and business alike and produce cascading effects far beyond the targeted sector and physical location of the incident. Direct terrorist attacks and natural, manmade, or technological hazards could produce catastrophic losses in terms of human casualties, property destruction, and economic effects, as well as profound damage to public morale and confidence. Attacks using components of the Nationís CI/KR as weapons of mass destruction could have even more devastating physical and psychological consequences.
