We must develop a comprehensive, prioritized assessment of facilities, systems, and functions of national-level criticality and monitor their preparedness across infrastructure sectors. Although the stated objective of the national strategy is to protect the obvious, it is not so obvious how to do so. The quotation above defines “critical” in terms of the government’s national-level responsibility. ” This detail is not specified in the strategy, but HSPD-7 clearly identifies attacks involving weapons of mass destruction as the threat.

The attacker – defender paradigm is asymmetric. Therefore the defender must think asymmetrically too. Asymmetric warfare is an art, but it is an art that can be acquired and perfected. The example given in this chapter—launching killerviruses from popular Internet hubs—is but one example of how to counter the cyber threat using asymmetric thinking. It is a counter-terrorist technique that can be applied quickly and inexpensively. EXERCISES 23 More ambitious strategies—such as converting the power grid from a network with vulnerabilities in its transmission and distribution “middle” to a system based on distributed generation—is much more expensive and will require much more time.

The major reasons why critical infrastructure should be protected, rather than making preparations to respond to attacks on infrastructure, are: a. Successful attacks can lead to mass casualties and mass economic damage. b. Successful attacks mean a loss in major capital equipment. c. Successful attacks mean loss of power and energy. d. Consequence management would be too expensive. e. Emergency response capability does not exist for coping with such attacks. The virtual city in cyber-space called San Lewis Rey has devoted $100 million to protect its critical infrastructure sectors, which consist mostly of a robust subway system, major telecommunications network, electrical power grid, and water utility.
