One of the most cited definitions of interdependency is the one by Rinaldi et al. who define interdependency as a

This definition is adopted on the Commission's staff working document on a new approach to the EPCIP :
The working document also highlights that threats to a single Critical Infrastructure can have "a very significant impact on a broad range of actors in different infrastructures and more widely". The document also highlight the cross-border effect of interdependencies, spanning a number of European countries. The example identified in the document is the European high-voltage electricity grid, composed of the interconnected national high-voltage electricity grids.
European Project Definitions
The CIPRNet project  uses the following definition:
An older definition was:
Dependency and Interdependency can be defined as relationships which consider the cascading effect within sector/sub-sectors and/or across sectors/sub-sectors
The degree of interdependence does not need to be equal in both directions.
Empirical analysis of Critical infrastructure incidents and events by Van Eeten et al., and again by Luiijf and Klaver (2021) shows that interdependencies (= the mutual Dependency) hardly occur; and when they occur the effect is at a lower (weaker) dependency level.
