Several critical infrastructures have been identified in the Czech Republic that when disturbed or destroyed, they would impact on the performance of the state�s functions. Failure of any such infrastructure could cause a failure of critical infrastructure in another Member State or Member States. Considering this international proportion, an integrated approach of the whole EU has been chosen to identify weaknesses, vulnerable points and gaps in protective measures. The goal of every EU member state is to protect entities and elements of critical infrastructure, prevent their disruption or their destruction, and minimize the impacts of possible failures of such infrastructures on the national and regional levels (Explanatory Memorandum, 2000).
