HSPD-7

Homeland Security Presidential Directive-7

HSPD-7 establishes the basis for a national coordinated approach to critical infrastructure protection and identifies the 17 CIKR sectors. (Note: an 18th sector – Critical Manufacturing – was formally recognized by the Secretary in September 2008.) The primary intent of HSPD-7 is to prevent the exploitation, incapacitation, or destruction of these infrastructures and resources. However, a secondary goal is to foster the development of methods and technologies that can minimize the impact if an adverse event actually occurs. Federal departments and agencies have been instructed to work with State and local governments, and with the private sector, to accomplish the objectives laid out in this directive.
