Critical Readings... A must for all

I recomend that anybody involved with IT Security or Critical Infrastructure read a paper by Michael J. Assante:

Infrastructure Protection in the Ancient World
What the Romans can tell us about their Aqueducts – What we may apply to our modern infrastructures


This is available online from:
http://www.inl.gov/nationalsecurity/energysecurity/d/infrastructure_protection_in_the_ancient_world.pdf

The Abstract
This paper provides lessons learned from ancient Roman attempts to protect the aqueduct, which was considered one of their most critical infrastructures. It also offers an analogy to modern day efforts in securing our own critical infrastructures, particularly the Nation’s electric power grid.
