Critical Infrastructure Protection
Critical infrastructure (CI) must be secure and able to withstand and rapidly recover from all hazards. CI owners and operators are uniquely positioned to manage risks to their individual operations and assets, and to determine effective strategies to make them more secure and resilient. Proactive and coordinated efforts between CI and the agencies within the MIAC, are necessary to strengthen and maintain secure, functioning, and resilient critical infrastructure – including assets, networks, and systems – that are vital to public confidence and Maine’s and the Nation’s safety, prosperity, and well-being.
Maine’s listing of critical infrastructure is diverse and complex. It includes distributed networks, varied organizational structures and operating models (including multinational ownership), interdependent functions and systems in both the physical space and cyberspace, and governance constructs that involve multi-level authorities, responsibilities, and regulations.
