 In this book, the subject of vulnerable systems has been addressed in depth. The focus has been on engineered physical Critical Infrastructures (CIs) such as the networks for energy supply, transportation, information and telecommunication. These are large-scale arrays of systems and assets that function systematically to produce and distribute services vital for modern economy and social welfare.
