Nowadays, however with the fast-growing digital world and the multitude of threats continuously evolving, cyber security became a top priority. The first part of the paper will present the critical sectors of modern society, the cyber security problem and the inter dependencies that are between critical infrastructures. The second part illustrates how critical infrastructures can be modelled and simulated in order to better understand them and discover unknown vulnerabilities. Finally, the third part will have as purpose to analyze the sources of vulnerabilities, and to bring in our attention twomodels for increasing cybersecurity in infrastructures, used in present
