Aware of the fact that an effective system of critical infrastructure protection creates preconditions for the normal and undisturbed functioning of the wider social system, Montenegro has made significant efforts in recent years, both in terms of normative definition of that sector and in finding optimal mechanisms for protection of national critical infrastructure. These efforts should not be understood solely as responding to current trends in the field, but also as a necessity, that is, an obligation to align national legislation and practice with the acquis communautaire in the process of accession to this EU country. All this also represents a discontinuity with an earlier state in which national critical infrastructure was viewed solely from the perspective of the armed forces and the needs of the state's defense system. Therefore, the objective of the work is presentation of public-private partnership in the critical infrastructure protection of Montenegro.
