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 2 – Critical Infrastructure: “It is important for people to be in contact with their loved ones, but 30 years ago we managed just fine without mobile phones. We’ve become increasingly used to them and our dependence on them has grown. Many of us feel like we can’t live without social networks.”
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.
