Infrastructure Data Sought

The Department of Homeland Security implemented its Protected Critical Infrastructure Information Program last week. Its goal is to reduce the country's susceptibility to terrorist attacks by having companies that provide critical infrastructure services voluntarily submit confidential, proprietary, and business-sensitive information about their operations to the federal government. The information will be used to identify and address vulnerabilities. Homeland Security estimates that private-sector companies run 85% of the services required to ensure national security, public health and safety, and economic stability.
