COMPREHENSIVE SECURITY RESEARCH TO CONTRIBUTE TO CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE PROTECTION CONTRIBUTIONS TO SECURITY GOVERNANCE IN DISASTER RISK REDUCTION Public

Critical infrastructure protection (CIP) has become a major issue in civil security, emergency management and natural hazard management. The all-hazard approach has gained ground on the international scale, and the “comprehensive approach” in security policies and security research has been advanced in order to meet current and future threats based on better integrated information, assessment, policies and capabilities. This paper aims to showcase this “comprehensive approach”, highlighting its character and cross-links to CI and natural hazard and disaster management. The paper also contributes to a broader perspective on CIP by addressing current European political concepts and socio-cultural conditions, as well as possible future EU roles. A focus is put on international critical infrastructure (CI) risks, and results from an Integrated Risk Taxonomy are presented. The paper concludes with proposing socio-cultural aspects for future research topics related to CI risks and security governance.
