About Critical Information Infrastructure Protection

Nations increasingly depend on ICT for the proper functioning of their economy, well-being of their citizens and security of the state. Essential information and communication infrastructures need to be protected in order to deter, mitigate and neutralise threats, risks and vulnerabilities and minimise the impact of incidents. That is why governments are designating critical information infrastructures (CII) and establishing their protection mechanisms.

Our team of experts has a proven track record of supporting and assisting nations in identifying national critical information infrastructures and developing critical information infrastructure protection frameworks.

How we do it?

  • Early national cybersecurity stakeholder involvement by establishing and maintaining their dialogue, consensus and ownership;
  • Support to the development of a national CII risk profile;
  • Development of a methodology for CII identification;
  • Assistance in mapping national critical information infrastructure;
  • Development of technical and organisational measures to manage cybersecurity risks;
  • Development of action plans for critical information infrastructure protection;
  • Support to the establishment of notification and information sharing mechanisms;
  • Focus on designation of competent authorities, establishment of security and incident notification requirements, and incident response capabilities;
  • Transfer of knowledge on international good practices.

Benefits
