Critical information infrastructure protection is a complex and multifaceted problem domain and continues to become more so. Because it is impossible to prevent the occurrence of all incidents, the CIIP should be approached in terms of resilience. However, governments are facing a key challenge in the implementation of resilience: the need of cooperation with the private sector. How to organize the public-private cooperation is arduous but geopolitics provides the tools to under-stand this kind of complex relationship. In analyzing the French case, this paper aims to see PPP through a new pathos: as a risk-mitigating factor.
