Overview Edit

As part of its risk management strategy under the NIPP, DHS established a National Critical Infrastructure Prioritization Program, which uses a tiered approach to identify nationally significant CIKR to enhance decision-making related to CIKR protection. These assets and systems can include a range of businesses or facilities in a local geographic area, such as refineries, chemical facilities, or commercial facilities, as well as the information systems and data systems that ensure their continued operation. CIKR identified through the program include several thousand level 1 or level 2 assets and systems which are those that if destroyed or disrupted, could cause some combination of significant casualties, major economic losses, or widespread and long-term disruptions to national well-being and governance capacity.
