These sectors, whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof. Presidential Policy Directive 21 (PPD-21): Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience advances a national policy to strengthen and maintain secure, functioning, and resilient critical infrastructure.

In regard to annual disasters, In the last three (3) years prior to 2020, (2017-2019), the number of FEMA Disaster Declarations in the United States totaled 362. Keep in mind that there were many more disasters that failed to meet the FEMA disaster declaration criteria, and were managed to utilize state and local resources.
