Describe how it meets the definition of a critical infrastructure and justify your response.

After looking at the national critical infrastructure sectors, choose one critical infrastructure located in your local area (region or state) that meets the criteria for a sector. This will be a physical location. For example, if you lived in the Nevada-Arizona region of the Hoover Dam, this would be an example of critical infrastructure in the dams sector, and you could choose it as a resource for the region and the nation. Your choice does not have to be on the same level; that is just an example.

Select your target location (including the name and region of the facility) and describe to your classmates why it is critical to your area.
Review the sector-specific plan and identify major sector components, assets, and identified risks associated with crime, terrorism, and cyberattacks.
Share the infrastructure that you chose with your classmates. Describe how it meets the definition of a critical infrastructure and justify your response.
Identify a major risk/threat associated with this location. (You can share any historical incident that you discover in your research.)

Critical Infrastructure represents “systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or a combination of those matters.”

Pick a critical infrastructure in Texas.
