We hear the term used as a “buzz word”, but in reality it is a mechanism that is design to run a specific set of operations within a government operation. Agencies can be assigned to maintain a specific section of the “government” infrastructure, and that can range from power and utilities, to communications and transportation. It is a vast area of numerous disciplines that comprise what is an infrastructure, but it can relate to many, many functions that keep and maintain the heartbeat of a countries day-to-day operations. It is also an area of focus since it is a target for disruption, destabilization and terrorism. Therefore it is not only important to understand how infrastructures work and operate, but their vulnerabilities as well. An infrastructure is also not limited just to government forums, but that of corporations and companies as well. Internally, each company has its own infrastructure that, combined, runs the day-to-day operations as well. Therefore, this section is designed to educate and produce examples of infrastructures, their methodologies, protocols, systems and procedures as well as the auditing mechanisms to properly examine the “condition” of its operations and to improve or correct issues that constantly arise.
