The Threat of Cyber Attacks on Critical Infrastructure

Critical Infrastructure makes up the backbone of our nation's economy, security, and health. The nation's critical infrastructure encompasses services that protect the most critical functions of American society, both physical and virtual, from the power in our homes, to the water and food that we consume, to the transportation systems we rely upon to function daily.
