I.General context

One of the major objectives of the EU is reducing the vulnerabilities of critical infrastructure and increasing their resilience. An adequate level of protection must be ensured and the harmful effects of disruptions on the society and citizens must be limited as far as possible.

Critical infrastructures extend across many sectors of the economy, including communications, banking and finance, transport and distribution, energy, utilities, health, food supply, as well as key government services.

Critical infrastructure consists of physical and information technology facilities, networks, services and assets that, if disrupted or destroyed, would have a serious impact on the health, safety, security or economic well-being of citizens or the effective functioning of the government as a result of the failure to maintain those functions.

Threats to a single critical infrastructure can have a very significant impact on a broad range of actors in different infrastructures and more widely.

Moreover, the effects of those interdependencies are not limited to single countries. Many critical infrastructures have a cross border dimension. In addition to interdependencies between sectors, there are also many interdependencies within the same sector but across several European countries.
