Implementation Roadmap for the National Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Research and Development Plan   [open pdf - 916KB]

"Strengthening the resilience and security of the Nation's critical infrastructure is an ongoing priority for the Federal government. Sixteen critical infrastructure sectors support the Nation's economy, society, and national security. It is essential that these sectors be protected against all threats and hazards so that the services they provide continue during disruptive events. As critical infrastructure systems become increasingly interdependent, ensuring their security and resilience becomes more complex. Targeted research and development efforts are needed to anticipate new threats and hazards to infrastructure systems and mitigate potential cascading effects across sectors. Federal departments and agencies are key stakeholders in critical infrastructure and are uniquely positioned to initiate much of this research and development. I am pleased to release the 'Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience (CISR) Research and Development (R&D) Implementation Roadmap,' which outlines Federal R&D priorities and activities to strengthen critical infrastructure security and resilience. The Implementation Roadmap was ordered by the 'National CISR R&D Plan' (December 2015) and developed by Federal departments and agencies via the National Science and Technology Council, with input from external stakeholders. The contents of the Implementation Roadmap reflect the Federal Government's continuing commitment to support critical infrastructure."
