In the context of national critical infrastructure security and resilience doctrine and deference to our federalist system and the sovereignty it demands, each of the sovereign states and their subdivisions have unilaterally interpreted their roles and priorities while still remaining true to the law of the land and national supremacy as demanded by the supremacy clause in Article VI of theUnited States Constitution. Each has independently structured, developed, and resourced its own critical infrastructure security and resilience program. Due to this subjective and evolving nature of the critical infrastructure security and resilience mission nationally, a qualitative research method was best suited and used for the foundational nature of this work. A formative program evaluation was conducted through an anonymous online survey to capture the perceptions and views of critical infrastructure professionals across the nation. The survey included an evaluation on the perceptions and views of the business process, program maturity and implementation, as well as the current state of outcomes. This thesis concludes with several key findings and recommendations based on the respondent survey data and analysis.
