The problem of critical infrastructure safety assurance should be treated as the complex problem taking into account the safety of all its levels, based on the integrated approach. The multiple failures classification in critical infrastructure is suggested in the paper. The root causes of multiple failures and coupling factors which stipulate the infrastructure vulnerability to common cause are considered. The principles of infrastructure multiple failures’ risk analysis are suggested.
