ABOUT THE BOOK
Securing the Nation’s Critical Infrastructures: A Guide for the 2021–2025 Administration is intended to help the United States executive administration, legislators, and critical infrastructure decision-makers prioritize cybersecurity, combat emerging threats, craft meaningful policy, embrace modernization, and critically evaluate nascent technologies.
The book is divided into 18 chapters that are focused on the critical infrastructure sectors identified in the 2013 National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP), election security, and the security of local and state governments. Each chapter features viewpoints from an assortment of former government leaders, C-level executives, academics, and other cybersecurity thought leaders.
Major cybersecurity incidents involving public sector systems occur with jarringly frequency: however, instead of rising in vigilant alarm against the threats posed to our vital systems, the nation has become desensitized and demoralized. This publication was developed to deconstruct the normalization of cybersecurity inadequacies in our critical infrastructures and to make the challenge of improving our national security posture less daunting and more manageable. To capture a holistic and comprehensive outlook on each critical infrastructure, each chapter includes a foreword that introduces the sector and perspective essays from one or more reputable thought-leaders in that space, on topics such as:
- The State of the Sector
- Emerging Areas for Innovation
- Recommendations for the Future

This guide was inspired by the call for a whole of nation response to cyber threats. Our hope is that the insights it contains will be used by our nation’s leaders to improve critical infrastructure resiliency and strengthen our national security.
– Parham Eftekhari, Founder & Chairman, ICIT and Executive Vice President, CyberRisk Alliance
It is incumbent upon ICIT to leverage our Fellows and partnerships to publish this compilation of subject matter experts’ essays and share grass roots and executive level recommendations with the current administration. The evolutionary process of cybersecurity depends upon the hyperconvergence of cyber dependencies, people, processes, and technology. Rather than fearing or ignoring cyber attacks, this document will help ensure the nations cyber resilience against compromise.
