Critical Infrastructure represents an umbrella term used by governments to group all those resources that are essential for the economic, financial, and social system of a country. The Presidential Policy Directive 21 (PPD-21): Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience, issued by the President of the United States in 2013, advances a national unity of effort to strengthen and maintain secure, functioning, and resilient critical infrastructure. PPD-21 identifies 16 critical infrastructure sectors: chemical sector; commercial facility sector; communication sector; critical manufacturing sector; dams sector; defense industrial base sector; emergency services sector; energy sector; financial service sector; food and agriculture sector; government facilities sector; health case and public health sector; information technology sector; nuclear reactors, materials, and waste sector; transportation system sector; and water and wastewater system sector.
