Infographic: Cybersecurity Awareness and Our Nation’s Critical Infrastructure

Our nation’s critical infrastructure is ubiquitous and it impacts almost every aspect of our day to day lives. The 16 sectors of critical infrastructure that work in unison to provide us with food, electricity, health care, and communication networks (among other things) are so baked into our daily activities, they’re easy to take for granted. Until those systems fail. With everything in our current infrastructure system fully integrated into the internet, threats and disruptions to necessary services are more likely to cause catastrophic damage. For week 4 of National Cybersecurity Month, the National Cybersecurity Alliance is highlighting the need to secure our critical infrastructure, and the role we all play in making that security real.
