National Infrastructure Protection Plan: Base Plan [Revised Draft NIPP V2.0]   [open pdf - 3MB]

"The NIPP [National Infrastructure Protection Plan] provides the coordinated approach that will be used to establish national priorities, goals, and requirements for CI/KR protection so that Federal funding and resources are applied in the most effective manner to reduce vulnerability, deter threats, and minimize the consequences of attacks and other incidents. It establishes the overarching concepts relevant to all CI/KR sectors identified in HSPD-7, and addresses the physical, cyber, human, and international dimensions required for effective implementation of comprehensive programs. The Plan specifies the key initiatives, milestones, and metrics required to achieve the Nations CI/KR protection mission. It sets forth a comprehensive risk management framework and clearly defined roles and responsibilities for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS); Sector- Specific Agencies; and other Federal, State, local, tribal, and private sector security partners. The NIPP was developed through extensive coordination with security partners at all levels of government and the private sector. Continued cooperation and collaboration between and among these security partners is critical to the successful implementation of this Plan. The Letter of Instruction included in the NIPP provides specific implementation guidance for all security partners. I ask for your continued commitment and cooperation as we move forward to identify the resources and the processes needed to implement the NIPP and to protect the Nations CI/KR."
