Development of frameworks for Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) protection

Nations increasingly depend on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for the proper functioning of their national Critical Infrastructure (CI) and society at large. ICT, such as Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) can be so critical to the well-being of a nation that their disruption poses a threat to national security and results in severe economic impact. ICT that qualifies as such can be referred to as a national Critical Information Infrastructure (CII). Examples of elements that are part of CII include communication networks, data centres, industrial control systems, and digital services within organisations that have been designated as critical to a nation. That is why governments are designating critical information infrastructures (CII) and establishing their protection mechanisms.

Our team of experts has a proven track record of supporting and assisting nations in identifying national critical information infrastructures and developing critical information infrastructure protection frameworks.

We establish at the earliest opportunity, national cyber security stakeholder involvement through dialogue, consensus, and ownership:

  • Support to the development of a national CII risk profile
  • Development of a methodology for CII identification
  • Assistance in mapping a national critical information infrastructure
  • Development of technical and organisational measures to manage cybersecurity risks
  • Development of action plans for critical information infrastructure protection
  • Support the creation of notification and information sharing mechanisms
  • Focus on the designation of competent authorities, the embedding of security and incident notification requirements, and incident response capabilities
  • Transfer of knowledge about international good practices


  • An understanding of your nation’s CIIs dependencies and vulnerabilities and consequences of failure
  • Identify your CIIs and know what to protect
  • Have CIIP action plans aligned with your nation’s risk profile
  • Establish partnerships among stakeholders to prevent, investigate, and respond to attacks on your CIIs
  • Ensure that legislative and regulatory frameworks are sufficient to adequately prevent, respond to, and recover from cyber-attacks against CII
  • Be prepared for managing cybersecurity incidents and crisis
