Defense Industrial Base Sector-Specific Plan: An Annex to the National Infrastructure Protection Plan [2010]   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The Defense Industrial Base (DIB) is an unmatched element of national power that differentiates the United States from all potential opponents. In 2009, the Secretary of Homeland Security published the updated National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP). The NIPP provides the overarching approach for the nation's critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) protection initiatives as a single integrated national effort. The Department of Defense (DoD) as the Sector-Specific Agency (SSA) for the DIB is responsible for leading the collaborative, coordinated effort to identify, assess, and improve the risk management of critical infrastructure across the DIB with its partners. As Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Americas' Security Affairs, I am pleased to publish our second edition of the DIB Sector-Specific Plan (SSP). The SSP outlines a common vision, goals, and approach in applying risk management activities to the sector. This plan is a product of extensive collaboration across DoD, its interagency partners, and representatives of the private sector, both national and international owners and operators that range from small proprietors to Fortune 500 corporations. The 2010 DIB SSP reflects continued maturation of the relationship between government and private sector DIB partners. […]This plan is a living document that will evolve as the national security environment changes. To this end, the DIB partners are committed to work together to review the plan so that the resulting revisions reflect the highest level of preparedness and readiness for the risk mitigation activities that keep the DIB resilient. Protection of the DIB is paramount to maintain the competitive advantage in executing U.S. national strategy."
