Practices for Securing Critical Information Assets   [open pdf - 661KB]

In May 1998, President Clinton issued Presidential Decision Directive 63 (PDD-63), which calls for a national effort to assure the security of the increasingly vulnerable and interconnected infrastructure of the United States, especially the cyber-based infrastructure. The Critical Infrastructure Assurance Office (CIAO) was established to assist in the development of a national plan for protecting the country's critical infrastructure and to coordinate plan implementation efforts. Federal departments and agencies are beginning the process of identifying and securing those critical assets and related infrastructure components that they depend on to fulfill their responsibilities of ensuring national security, national economic security, and public health and safety.
