Critical infrastructure protection (CIP) requires coordination and maintenance of a variety of public and private sites. Although jurisdiction and infrastructures vary by degrees, the reaction and prevention plans must be commensurate with the community and environment.
Focus your discussion on the following:
- Select 1 element of critical infrastructure.
- Explain how local responsibility is a high priority for the security or prevention of terrorist sabotage of your selected critical infrastructure element.
- Explain how involved the federal government should be in the maintenance and protection of any privately owned pieces of your selected critical infrastructure element.
