ABSTRACT

Federal Legal Landscape: A 'Legal Foundations' Study: Report 2 of 12: Report to the President's Commission on Critical Infrastructure Protection   [open pdf - 302KB]

This report represents the first effort of its kind to characterize the legal and regulatory structures of the critical infrastructures as they pertain to infrastructure assurance. The first part provides a high-level overview of the legal landscape. The report then presents the results of a two-stage survey, proceeding agency by agency and, in some cases, office by office, describing each of the relevant body's authority and jurisdiction and its current mechanisms and programs relating to infrastructure assurance. It also attempts to identify authorities or mechanisms or to merely spot infrastructure-assurance-related issues. These efforts have identified many legal and policy issues that will help drive the implementation process for the Commission's recommendations.
