Critical Infrastructure

In 2016, IPRI co-sponsored a series of five workshops examining the challenge of securing critical infrastructure. The event focused on four critical economic sectors, all of which are overwhelmingly or entirely in private hands: electricity, finance, communications, and oil-and-natural-gas (ONG). Based on the workshops, the critical infrastructure group is finalizing a report that makes both long- and short-term recommendations of broad applicability to critical infrastructure.
