Critical Network Infrastructure is a term coined by UK government that describes:
“Those critical elements of infrastructure (namely assets, facilities, systems, networks or processes and the essential workers that operate and facilitate them), the loss or compromise of which could result in:
a) major detrimental impact on the availability, integrity or delivery of essential services – including those services, whose integrity, if compromised, could result in significant loss of life or casualties – taking into account significant economic or social impacts; and/or
b) significant impact on national security, national defence, or the functioning of the state”.

The national infrastructure is categorised into thirteen sectors and over its 18+ years of Critical Network experience IT4A has provided network solutions in 8 of the 13 sectors, these being:
- financial services
- civil nuclear
Our skills, experience, competence and security clearances open the door for opportunities in the remaining 5 sectors:
- emergency services
IT4A provide a complete solution for Critical Network Infrastructure projects. Our approach involves collaboration to define and refine requirements, scope and basis of design. We then work in partnership to deliver a solution that is sustainable and best utilises the combination of resources available.
Our approach has been recognised by Nuclear ARMC. IT4A have been accepted onto the NARMC fit4nuclear pathway that is readying UK manufacturing for the UK government's investment in UK Nuclear energy - both new build and obsolescence.
