There are 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof. Presidential Policy Directive 21 (PPD-21): Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience advances a national policy to strengthen and maintain secure, functioning, and resilient critical infrastructure. This directive supersedes Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7.

We help design and implement security measures to protect critical infrastructure assets from threats such as terrorism, natural disasters, and cyberattacks.

  • Compliance and Regulatory Support: We stay up to date with relevant regulations, standards, and industry best practices. Specifically, we help organizations navigate complex compliance requirements and ensure adherence to applicable regulations, such as the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, DHS CISA guidelines, or sector-specific regulations.

  • Business Continuity and Resilience: Work with organizations to develop and enhance their business continuity and resilience capabilities. This includes developing strategies, plans, and procedures to ensure the continuity of critical operations during disruptions or emergencies.

  • Training and Exercises: Provide training and conduct exercises to enhance the preparedness and response capabilities of organizations and their personnel. This may include tabletop exercises, simulations, and training programs focused on incident response, crisis management, and cybersecurity awareness.

They assist in establishing partnerships, sharing best practices, and fostering information sharing to enhance the overall security and resilience of critical infrastructure networks.
