ICT for critical infrastructure
protection

 

The protection of critical infrastructures is one of the major challenges for society and economy. In this issue’s cover theme, we highlight some of the latest solutions European research has to offer in making our critical infrastructures more secure. The relevance of the cover theme has been dramatically highlighted by the recent earthquake/tsunami and the ensuing nuclear disaster in Japan.

This issue presents selected insights from European experts on research activities and results which will help improve critical infrastructure protection through the use of advanced information and communication technologies.
