Focus upon the private sectors roles and responsibilities related to our nations critical infrastructure, as well as the necessity of ensuring the goods and services they offer are provided in an uninterrupted manner. The combination of these two issues will serve as the primary focus of this written assignment.

First, select a specific critical infrastructure sector that you have an interest in and would like to direct attention towards. Based upon your chosen sector, offer information related to the primary areas of risk it has identified and steps being taken to address them. Such information can be found within the applicable Sector Specific Plan and related resources. Next, offer insight regarding how a private sector organization operating within this sector would enhance its ability to provide its essential services when facing such threats and hazards. Essentially, you will be providing details regarding how a private sector entity (such as a locally owned fuel provider within the Energy Sector) carries out its continuity planning initiatives. To aid you in this effort, utilize FEMAs Continuity Guidance Circular to convey specifics regarding building and maintaining continuity capability.
