    Abstract

    Critical infrastructures (CIs) are highly interconnected and complex systems. The existing knowledge of the dependencies and interdependencies and related potential risk of cascading effects is still insuffi cient to provide immediate solutions. Therefore, new, systematic tools for risk assessments and management are needed. Foresight and scenario methods and new approaches for threat identifi cation have been applied in order to investigate the novel risk factors of CIs and their implications.
