"Through DHS and the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, the NIAC provides the President with advice on the security of the critical infrastructure sectors and their information systems. These critical infrastructures support vital sectors of the economy, including banking and finance, transportation, energy, manufacturing, and emergency government services, among others. The NIAC convened the Physical/Cyber Convergence Working Group (CWG), in October 2005, to investigate the ongoing convergence of physical and cyber technologies for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and process control systems and their consolidated network management. The Working Group convened a Study Group of subject matter experts to inform its work. The Working Group report informed the NIAC's deliberations."
