Critical Infrastructure Protection Program:

A significant objective of Maine's Homeland Security strategy is to improve the protection of critical infrastructure and key resources across the State. The MIAC supports this initiative through the Critical Infrastructure Protection Program (CIPP), which aims to improve the flow of information and intelligence to and from various public and private entities. CIPP is broken into seventeen sectors of key resources:

  • Agriculture and Food
  • Defense Industrial Base
  • Energy
  • Public Health and Healthcare
  • National Monuments and Icons
  • Banking and Finance
  • Drinking Water and Treatment Systems
  • Chemical Facilities
  • Commercial Facilities
  • Dams
  • Emergency Services
  • Commercial Nuclear Reactors, Materials, and Waste
  • Information Technology
  • Telecommunications
  • Postal and Shipping
  • Transportation Systems
  • Government Facilities

Maine has both public and private assets that fall into each of the CIPP sectors. Under Homeland Security Presidential Directive #7 (HSPD-7) and the Department of Homeland Security's National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP), Maine Emergency Management Agency and the MIAC are working to build partnerships across the various sectors that include State, County, and Local officials, as well as private sector representatives from each of the seventeen sectors.

CIPP efforts extend beyond vulnerability assessments and improved physical security at key facilities in Maine. Through partnerships and information exchange, we hope to provide homeland security alerts and warnings, security assessments and advisories, and other critical information to sector leadership. The results of CIPP will be a better informed and better prepared public and private sector, leading to increased protection of Maine's critical assets.

More information on the NIPP is available at www.dhs.gov/nipp or by contacting the MIAC directly.
