The main tool and the heart of VITA was the demonstrator experiment. It delivered the most important result of VITA, namely the proof that the VITA methodology with scenarios, realistic exercises and participation of stakeholders and administrations is able to gain insight into mechanisms of Critical infrastructure protection (CIP) is the study, design and implemen-tation of measures (pro-action, prevention, preparation, incident response, recovery) aimed to reduce the risk that critical infrastructure fails with serious consequences and..
