  • National Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Research and Development Plan

    The purpose of this National Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Research and Development Plan (hereafter referred to as the National CISR R&D Plan or the Plan) is to identify National R&D Priority Areas that inform R&D investments, promote innovation, and guide research activities across the critical infrastructure community. The critical infrastructure community includes public and private critical infrastructure owners and operators; Federal departments and agencies, including SSAs; State, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) governments and regional entities; and other organizations from the private and nonprofit sectors, including research and educational institutions and, in some cases, international partners and organizations. Future CISR R&D activities should be driven by continued collaborative efforts aimed at strengthening the security and resilience of critical infrastructure.
