CISA Launches the Infrastructure Dependency Primer to Strengthen Community Resilience

 Infrastructure is the backbone of communities, providing critical services and enabling essential functions such as health, safety, and economic growth. Understanding critical infrastructure dependencies and incorporating them into planning is key to the resilience of communities across the nation.  The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) announces today the Infrastructure Dependency Primer (IDP), developed to help state, local, tribal, and territorial planners and decisionmakers better understand how infrastructure dependencies can impact community risk and resilience and how to incorporate that knowledge into ongoing community planning.

The critical infrastructure upon which communities rely every day faces a vast array of ever-evolving threats, from terrorist attacks and cyber intrusions, to extreme weather and deferred maintenance. Investing in critical infrastructure that can withstand and quickly recover from any and all threats is essential to maintaining our nation’s economy, security, and health.
