Cross-sector Dependencies

Foreign Methods and Their Potential Applicability in the Netherlands (full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

Some parts of a nation’s infrastructure are considered critical because a failure or disruption thereof can have serious consequences. Protection of these critical infrastructures (CI) is an important topic of the Dutch national security policy. Reducing the risk of cascading effects due to cross-sector dependencies is a key issue in this approach. This study investigated methods to assess cross-sector dependencies and ways to bring this knowledge into practical use in four selected nations (Sweden, The United Kingdom, The United States and Australia).
