    This paper addresses factors of vulnerability and resilience for critical infrastructures (CIs). Such factors mean elements contributing to vulnerability, for instance structural weaknesses, low maintenance level or infrastructure age. On resilience side such elements include for instance improved condition monitoring, better preparedness planning or various technical solutions. The analysis conducted considers these factors on a generic level for all critical infrastructures and after that focuses on energy systems and their specific characteristics. The information obtained for vulnerability and resilience factors is highly useful for CI operation and policy purposes. At the same, the methodology developed can be applied for different data sets or can be developed further for more detailed analysis.
