IN THE SPOTLIGHT 



What is critical infrastructure?
The nation's critical infrastructure provides the essential services that underpin American society and serve as the backbone of our nation's economy, security, and health. We know it as the power we use in our homes, the water we drink, the transportation that moves us, the stores we shop in, and the communication systems we rely on to stay in touch with friends and family.

Overall, there are 16 critical infrastructure sectors that compose the assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof. The National Protection and Programs Directorate's Office of Infrastructure Protection (IP) leads the coordinated national effort to manage risks to the nation's critical infrastructure and enhance the security and resilience of America's physical and cyber infrastructure. Read more about how IP leads this national effort.
Active Shooter White Paper
On July 22, 2011, in the deadliest attack on Norway since World War II, Anders Behring Breivik detonated a vehicle borne explosive in the government district of Oslo, killing 8 and injuring another 209. He then moved on to Utøya Island where he attacked a youth summer camp run by a rival political party, methodically shooting and ultimately killing 69 teens before surrendering to police. In court testimony Breivik claimed that he began planning the attack in 2002. It is known from the study of hundreds of Active Shooters
incidents that these are a predatory form of violence, and that Active Shooter incidents begin long before the first shot is fired.
