Summary/Abstract: In order to talk about performance management, one shall apply business continuity concepts that imply to forecast, understand, document, measure and transform a complex situation at a specific time in a highly depended environment. Business continuity within critical infrastructures (CI) sectors represent the core of a comfortable life in terms of vital societal functions, health, safety, security, economic or social well-being of people (as stated Directive 114/2008). For a long period of time, critical infrastructure sector were assessed as an isolated system with no exchanges with the macro system / environment. Nowadays, when the "systems of system" paradigm is more and more applied, the interdependencies become a major topic of discussion. Interdependencies represent the bi-directional relationship between the sectors under evaluation; the activity disruption within one sector is followed by the disruptions within the interdependent sectors. The authors consider very useful such demarche as identifying the CIs sectors interdependencies that might occur when dealing with e-Learning platforms. Furthermore, once identified, the authors analysed the impact of service disruption within one CI sector over the others CIs performance.
