Frédéric Petit and Lawrence Paul Lewis, Risk and Infrastructure Science Center Global Security Sciences Division, Argonne National Laboratory Introduction Critical infrastructure dependencies and interdependencies are fundamental considerations when assessing the resilience of infrastructure—and, ultimately, the resilience of the community, sector, or region in which the infrastructure is located. Critical infrastructure assets help other entities function […]
