December 17, 2003 Homeland Security Presidential Directive/Hspd-7 

Subject: Critical Infrastructure Identification, Prioritization, and 


(1) This directive establishes a national policy for Federal departments 
and agencies to identify and prioritize United States critical 
infrastructure and key resources and to protect them from terrorist 


(2) Terrorists seek to destroy, incapacitate, or exploit critical 
infrastructure and key resources across the United States to threaten 
national security, cause mass casualties, weaken our economy, and 
damage public morale and confidence. 

(3) America's open and technologically complex society includes a wide 
array of critical infrastructure and key resources that are potential 
terrorist targets. The majority of these are owned and operated by the 
private sector and State or local governments. These critical 
infrastructures and key resources are both physical and cyber-based 
and span all sectors of the economy. 

(4) Critical infrastructure and key resources provide the essential 
services that underpin American society. The Nation possesses 
numerous key resources, whose exploitation or destruction by terrorists 
could cause catastrophic health effects or mass casualties comparable 
to those from the use of a weapon of mass destruction, or could 
profoundly affect our national prestige and morale. In addition, there is 
critical infrastructure so vital that its incapacitation, exploitation, or 
destruction, through terrorist attack, could have a debilitating effect on 
security and economic well-being. 

(5) While it is not possible to protect or eliminate the vulnerability of all 
critical infrastructure and key resources throughout the country, 
strategic improvements in security can make it more difficult for attacks 
to succeed and can lessen the impact of attacks that may occur. In 
addition to strategic security enhancements, tactical security 
improvements can be rapidly implemented to deter, mitigate, or 
neutralize potential attacks.
