VULNERABILITIES OF CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE WITH MILITARY FACETS

Florentina Iugan

Abstract


Abstract: The considerable restructuring of the defence systems is a global feature of the current international security environment, with consequences in increasing the complexity of the military dimension of the critical infrastructure protection activities. The trends toward an integrated management of the national defence and security target the guidelines set up by the NATO and EU and require the assertion of an integrated risk management which should comprise new threats, as terrorism is. The cities are the main targets for terrorists because of their multiple critical infrastructures. The increasing of public safety and security within the city has become a must-have of the incoming concepts of planning, like the safe city or the military urbanism.
Keywords: critical infrastructure; risk management; defence system; safe city; military urbanism.
