Org/about-asme/terms-of-use Table 7. 3 – Identify Critical Infrastructures and Interdependencies. The evaluation team identifies the critical internal and external infrastructures and their interdependencies. The infrastructures may include electric power, fuels, natural gas, telecommunications, transportation, water and wastewater, emergency services, computer systems, air handling systems, fire systems and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems and other systems that support the critical operations of each asset.

Without the high potential for consequence that a decision-maker would seek to avoid, the potential risk is negligible. The criteria for differentiating between consequence levels for inclusion depend on the decision-maker’s purpose and role, so are typically set lower for an inhouse assessment than for an assessment to identify the major critical assets of a state or the nation. For those analyses, conducted to improve the knowledge needed for government decision making, many assets and scenarios will be screened out as having insufficiently high potential for consequence.

This depends on the value of the asset, the hazards to the asset, and the consequences if the asset is damaged, stolen, or misused. For hazardous chemicals, consideration may include toxic exposure to workers or the community, the potential use of the chemical to produce a weapon, or the properties of the chemical that might contaminate public resources. For a water utility, it might include the possibility of product contamination or denial of service for a significant duration.
