The sectors typically considered as critical infrastructure are: energy, water services, communications, transport, food supply chains, health, banking and finance, national security and defence-related assets. The definitions of ‘infrastructure’ still tend to focus on physical infrastructures, but some countries now also include intangible assets, such as supply chains that enable the functioning of physical infrastructure and/or deliver critical services (OECD 2008: 6). For instance, the Australian government’s Critical Infrastructure Resilience Strategy (2010) defines critical infrastructure as: … those physical facilities, supply chains, information technologies and communication networks which, if destroyed, degraded or rendered unavailable for an extended period, would significantly impact on the social or economic wellbeing of the nation or affect Australia’s ability to conduct national defence and ensure national security.

The European Union defines CI as an asset, “system or part thereof located in Member States which is essential for the maintenance of vital societal functions, health, safety, security, economic or social well-being of people, and the disruption or destruction of which would have a significant impact in a Member State as a result of the failure to maintain those functions” (EU 2008). The EU directive acknowledges an increase in transnational, and indeed, global dependencies in critical infrastructures and proposed five types of interdependencies: (1) physical, (2) information, (3) geospatial, (4) policy and process and (5) societal.
