Some Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Environmental, Legal and Other Process Effects on Critical Infrastructures

There are so many political, economic, social, technological, environmental, legal, and other effects on Critical Infrastructures that this Chapter can only highlight a few. A reasonable view would be that everything of this nature affects Critical Infrastructure. The major political driver with regard to Critical Infrastructure and particularly Critical Information Infrastructure in the OECD and, arguably, in the rest of the world is the USA government. Therefore much of this Chapter’s political section relates to effects that have an origin in the USA. The economics section looks at some of the actual resilience of Capitalism and some of the dangers marketers face. Social, technological, and environmental sections look at some current issues relevant to Critical Infrastructures. The legal section looks at the USA Patriot Act and the recent Civil Contingencies Act in the UK. Some comments are made about risk management.
