This week’s extract is taken from Toomas Viira’s book Lessons Learned – Critical Information Infrastructure Protection, which is a vital source of information and thought-provoking insights into potential issues within critical information infrastructure (CII).
Episode 1 – Introduction: “These systems must be very well protected against cyber-attacks. Cyber-attacks could interrupt all or part of critical infrastructure services for several hours or days, bringing health, safety, economic, environmental and reputational consequences.”
The book offers 23 key lessons, including how to:
- Describe the critical infrastructure service and determine its service level;
- Identify and analyse the interconnections and dependencies of information systems;
- Create a functioning organisation to protect CII; and
- Train people to make sure they are aware of cyber threats and know the correct behaviour.
