The majority of all U.S. critical infrastructures are privately owned, such as power plants, electrical grids and communication networks to name a few. The effectiveness of vulnerability assessments depends upon the voluntary collaboration of private sector owners and operators.

In 2006 US Department of Homeland Security released the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) which was revised in 2009 and again in 2013. NIPP 2013: Partnering for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience -- outlines how government and private sector participants in the critical infrastructure community work together to manage risks and achieve security and resilience outcomes.

Toshiba is currently developing security technologies to protect infrastructure control systems from cyber-attacks by isolating compromised devices and automatic repair and recovery which ensures the normal continuation of system operations without being affected by the cyber-attack.
