A great deal of policy and debate over interconnected infrastructures focuses on a subset of the major patterns and ways two or more infrastructures are interconnected. Cascading interinfrastructure failure, in which the failure of one triggers failure in another that is spatially near or otherwise functionally dependent on it, has received considered attention. However, at least five other types of interconnectivity in ICISs are of policy and management relevance, and these are introduced and implications drawn for subsequent chapters. The six ICISs are illustrated from our case study and through the secondary literature.

Keywords:   ICISs, risk assessment and management, interconnected system failure
