Critical Infrastructure Warning Information Network


CIWIN (Critical infrastructure warning information network) is a protected internet portal designed for publication of research works, analyses and studies, and for facilitating exchange of information and views of the expert public about critical infrastructure in the EU. CIWIN is a pillar of EPCIP (European programme for critical infrastructure protection) that seeks to improve the protection of critical infrastructure in Europe - across all EU member states and in all relevant sectors of economic activity. Critical infrastructures are vital for the security, economy and social welfare of the European Union and its members. They have evolved into complex and interdependent systems that are exposed to cyber threats, operational dysfunctions, technological accidents or natural hazards.
