National Infrastructure Protection Plan

Definition/Scope: The National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) is a Homeland Security plan whose goals include: build a safer, more secure, and more resilient America by enhancing protection of the Nation's critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) to prevent, deter, neutralize, or mitigate the effects of deliberate efforts by terrorists to destroy, incapacitate, or exploit them; and to strengthen national preparedness, timely response, and rapid recovery in the event of an attack, natural disaster, or other emergency. The NIPP sets forth a comprehensive risk analysis and management framework and clearly defines critical infrastructure protection roles and responsibilities for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS); Federal Sector-Specific Agencies (SSAs); and other Federal, State, regional, local, tribal, territorial, and private sector CIKR partners. The NIPP provides the coordinated approach used to establish national priorities, goals, and requirements for infrastructure protection to ensure that funding and resources are applied effectively.
