Peer reviewed, Journal article
MetadataShow full item record
Critical infrastructure is an asset or a system that is essential for the maintenance of vital societal functions. The protection of such an infrastructure requires more than a technical understanding of the underlying issues; it also needs an understanding of the organizational aspects. Although there are several standards and guidelines for the protection of critical infrastructure, they are usually vague and do not offer practical solutions. In this paper, we describe a `work in progress' holistic approach for enhancing critical infrastructure protection. First, we introduce the theoretical background of this study. Then, based on this theoretical foundation, we propose a holistic approach which takes into account both organisational and technical measures. In addition, we provide a synopsis of our research outcomes so far and our ongoing work towards enhancing critical infrastructure protection.
