Even though this complex and not well understood phenomenon has leaped to the forefront of U.S. national security strategy development in the latter part of the 1990s, it lies at the heart of national defense - transcending economic, diplomatic, military, and informational elements of power. Development and implementation of strong U.S. national security strategy is vital if this nation hopes to move in the right direction to identify vital, critical infrastructure vulnerabilities and make progress in eliminating or protecting those vulnerabilities. What is being done by the U.S. Government to get its arms around this is sue This paper examines national security strategy development, legislation, and resources being recommended, planned for, and applied to critical infrastructure protection.
