One widely perceived yet poorly understood phenomenon in the practice of critical infrastructure protection is that of blind spots. These are certain aspects of the interrelationships among different critical infrastructure systems (CI systems) that could trigger catastrophe across CI systems but are concealed from planners, and discovered only in the aftermath of a crisis. In this paper, we discuss the sources of blind spots, and explore the feasibility of various techniques to help reveal blind spots.
