This week, the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) reminds us that, “our day-to-day life depends on the country’s 16 sectors of critical infrastructure, which supply food, water, financial services, public health, communications and power along with other networks and systems. A disruption to this system, which is operated via the internet, can have significant and even catastrophic consequences for our nation.”
October is National Cyber Security Week and week 4 (this week), the emphasis is on the importance of securing critical infrastructure.
Currently, there are sixteen critical infrastructure sectors.
