This section emphasizes the critical importance of integrity management in safeguarding technology and systems essential for national reliability, safety, and security. Integrity management is a top priority across various sectors including energy, water, transportation, healthcare, finance, and nuclear power. Failures in critical systems within these sectors can lead to severe consequences, highlighting the necessity for robust integrity management practices. At its core, integrity management aims to ensure the reliability, security, and availability of these systems. This involves preventing unauthorized access, data corruption, and operational disruptions through the implementation of robust protocols, procedures, and technologies. Integrity management strategies must address both external threats such as cyberattacks and natural disasters, as well as internal vulnerabilities including human error and equipment failures. Central to integrity management is the development and implementation of comprehensive risk assessment frameworks. These frameworks help identify potential threats and vulnerabilities within critical systems, enabling organizations to prioritize and proactively address them. By emphasizing integrity management and leveraging risk assessment frameworks, organizations can enhance reliability, security, and resilience. This proactive approach is crucial for maintaining national reliability, safety, and security across various industries.
