Objective

Critical infrastructures are those which, if disrupted as a result of a terrorist attack, would have an impact of regional, national or international scale on communities and economies. Such an attack could be co-ordinated, disrupting several infrastructures directly or through cascade effects. This proposal is aimed at assessing and recommending feasible and cost-effective solutions for the improvement of security in four key sectors of critical infrastructure, urban public transport, rail transport, air transport, maritime transport, freight transport and energy.

These sectors, for the COUNTEARCT proposes, have been grouped in the following clusters, attending to similarity and economy of resources criteria: - Surface Passenger Transport - Freight Transport - Air Transport - Energy Each of these sectors is represented by a thematic cluster comprising a network of Users and a number of Partners, one of which is a security company.
