"The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) indicates that the majority of the nation's critical infrastructure is owned by the private sector. However, from a policy standpoint, the potential role the entrepreneur and the free-market system might play in critical infrastructure and key resource (CIKR) risk management may not be fully appreciated. Recognizing an environment of budgetary uncertainty for future homeland security expenditures, this article suggests the principals of a freemarket system may be beneficial to national CIKR risk management. Furthermore, the concept of 'entrepreneurial security' is introduced as a potential free-market based paradigm for national CIKR risk management."
