Netherlands

Since April 2015, The Netherlands recognises [3] two categories in criticality of critical infrastructure:
Category A: at least impact on one of the following four impact categories:

  1. economic impact: > 50.000 million euro costs and damages, or 5.0% decrease in real income
  2. physical impact: > 10.000 deaths, severely injured or chronically ill
  3. social-psychological impact: > 1 million persons are emotionally affected or experience serious societal survivability problems (fear, anger, disturbance)
  4. cascade impact: this disruption causes failure of minimal two other (critical) sectors

Category B: at least impact on one of the following three impact categories:

  1. economic impact: > 5.000 million euro costs and damages, or 1.0% decrease in real income
  2. physical impact: > 1.000 deaths, severely injured or chronically ill
  3. social-psychological impact: > 100.000 persons are emotionally affected or experience serious societal survivability problems


Qatar

Criteria for being critical are:

  1. Identify the organization’s key core business processes and their dependency on assets owned and managed by the organization (e.g., power plant, refinery, general ledger, etc.);
  2. Use impact severity table to determine an impact score for the loss/non-functioning of each key asset; and
  3. Classify all assets as critical when the criticality score is greater than twenty (20) according to the impact criteria table in [4] [5].
