Abstract

The well-being of a nation depends on its critical infrastructure and how secure and resilient it is to sustain the services to its citizen and maintain normal life and activity. In today’s world the critical infrastructure is so widely distributed in time and space that the entire process of establishing, maintaining, securing and making it resilient involve a number of stake holders like the governments at the federal, state and local levels; specialised technical organizations in public and private sectors; private vendors, security agencies and last but not the least the citizens or the society. Each one of them has to play a role in close collaboration with other stakeholders. Moreover the critical infrastructure is increasingly becoming more dependent on cross- sectorial processes governed by technology and humans. All of them closely interact with each other, e.g., the humans interact with humans, humans interact with technologies, and this interactive process is highly complex, complicated and biased due to their cultural values, judgements and perceptions which in turn are dynamic in space and time(Ramamurthy, 2012). In this essay, we would examine how the process of building the security and the resilience in critical infrastructure can be achieved through a collaborative approach and neutralising the cultural perceptions.

Keywords: Critical Infrastructure, Cultural Perception, Collaborative Approach, Risk Management Framework, security and resilience
