The national and economic security of the United States depends on the reliable function of critical infrastructure, which was once isolated in terms of being NOT connected to the Internet.
The attacks on critical infrastructure are a growing concern with greater convenience of connectivity. The once limited attack surface is now easier to access. The attacks are on the increase and within critical infrastructure a cyber attack can mean loss of life not just loss of material and corporate assets.
This Exchange focuses on several sectors of critical infrastructure including; energy, chemical, nuclear, manufacturing, water, and transportation.
