Private Intrusion Response: A 'Legal Foundations' Special Study: Report to the President's Commission on Critical Infrastructure Protection [open pdf - 61KB]
Private Intrusion Response originated among the studies conducted to prepare reports in the Legal Foundations series to inform the deliberations and recommendations of the President's Commission on Critical Infrastructure Protection (PCCIP). Executive Order 13010 established the President's Commission on Critical Infrastructure Protection (PCCIP) and tasked it with assessing the vulnerabilities or, and threats to, eight ranked critical infrastructures and developing a national strategy for protecting those infrastructures from physical and cyber threats. The Executive Order also required that the PCClP consider the legal and policy issues raised by efforts to protect the critical infrastructures and propose statutory and regulatory changes necessary to effect any subsequent PCCIP recommendations. To respond to the legal challenges posed by efforts to protect critical infrastructures, the PCCIP undertook a variety of activities to formulate options and to facilitate eventual implementation of PCCIP recommendations by the Federal government and the private sector. The PCCIP recognized that the process of infrastructure assurance would require cultural and legal change over time. Thus, these activities were undertaken with the expectation that many would continue past the life of the PCCIP itself.
