UK Business: Launch of the Center for the Protection of National Infrastructure

This is how a state (UK) protects the local business and this can be a model applied all over the world. Imagine that their advice will probably reduce the vulnerability risk (not only from terrorist threats but also from economic espionage). Note that this center was much needed as the threats regarding the UK based companies multiplied in the last years.

The center is government authority and set up by the MI5 (british intelligence).

The National Security Advice Centre (NSAC) and the National Infrastructure Security Coordination Centre (NISCC) have merged to form the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI). From 1 February 2007, CPNI will provide protective security advice to businesses and organisations across the national infrastructure. Its website presents a range of security advice including information on the threats, security planning, methods of attack, protecting your assets, publications and research. – MI5 Press release
