In today’s challenging times, many kinds of industrial facilities have been identified as potential targets, including chemical and petrochemical plants, oil refineries, liquid and natural gas distributors, electrics plants etc…
We define an “Infrastructure” as “Critical” when it is so vital that, if disrupted or destroyed, it would have a serious impact on the health, safety, security or economic well-being of Citizens or the effective functioning of governments.

Only an approach that integrates an highly comprehensive and global security plan can deter and protect ICS from terrorist danger.
