Information Infrastructures are an eclectic mix of open and closed networks, private and public systems, the Internet, and government, military, and civilian organizations. Significant efforts are required to provide infrastructure protection, increase cooperation between sectors, and identify points of responsibility. The threats to infrastructures are many and various, and increasing daily: Information Warfare, hackers, terrorists, criminals, activists, and even competing organisations all pose significant threats that cannot be sufficiently dealt with using the current infrastructure model. An enhanced National Information Infrastructure model is presented that provides for greater defence against threats such as Information Warfare.
