Hence, the lives and property of citizens may be at risk. Concomitantly, such events harm the economic development of the state. Therefore, the protection of critical infrastructure is one of the priorities facing the states. The aim of this paper is to present selected issues concerning risks and vulnerabilities within the protection of critical infrastructure.
