Critical Infrastructure Public-Private Partnerships - When is the Responsibility for Leadership Exchanged

This paper examines the nexus between the Australia’s public and private sectors regarding critical infrastructure. In the current dynamic threat environment resultant from the implementation of insecure technologies no clear point of hand over is discernible. By utilising examples and case studies this article amplifies this point. The private sector will not allow the public sector the network access required for the public sector to assume sole responsibility; therefore, the private sector must become committed beyond their first order responsibilities to their shareholders and acknowledge their fundamental involvement in collective security.
