Infrastructure Resilience Planning Framework (IRPF), Version 1.0   [open pdf - 5MB]

From the Overview: "The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) developed the Infrastructure Resilience Planning Framework (IRPF) to provide an approach for localities, regions, and the private sector to work together to plan for the security and resilience of critical infrastructure services in the face of multiple threats and changes. [...] This Framework provides methods and tools to address critical infrastructure security and resilience through planning, by helping communities and regions: [1] 'Understand and communicate' how infrastructure resilience contributes to community resilience; [2] 'Identify' how threats and hazards might impact the normal functioning of community infrastructure and delivery of services; [3] 'Prepare' governments, owners and operators to withstand and adapt to evolving threats and hazards; [4] 'Integrate' infrastructure security and resilience considerations, including the impacts of dependencies and cascading disruptions, into planning and investment decisions; and [5] 'Recover' quickly from disruptions to the normal functioning of community and regional infrastructure[.] For the purpose of this document, 'community' should be understood to include not just individual cities or towns, but also multijurisdictional regional authorities conducting planning and stakeholders with common interests or working on a common corridor to enhance the resilience of related infrastructure systems."
