Keeping Infrastructure Strong and Secure
November is Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month, a nationwide effort to raise awareness and reaffirm the commitment to keep our Nation’s critical infrastructure secure and resilient. National Defense ISAC has committed to participate in November’s Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month for the second year in a row.
NDISAC plays a vital role in keeping the country’s critical infrastructure safe by providing organizations in the defense sector the ability to collaborate with each other in a secure manner. Members of all sizes share intelligence on incidents, cyber and physical threats, vulnerabilities, and associated threat remediation. NDISAC not only encourages collaboration and offers secure forums, but also is uniquely a high-trust environment. Our analysts have built a highly-active, high-trust and high-quality community to collaborate, share, and support members. NDISAC members receive trusted and timely expert information that increases sector-wide knowledge of physical and cyber security threats.
During November’s Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month, we hope to promote different themes related to critical infrastructure security and resilience, including:
- Our connected infrastructure: Cyber and physical interdependence
- Hometown Security – “Connect, Plan, Train, Report.”
- Partnering with the public and private sectors to build resilience
- Fostering innovation and investment in resilient infrastructure
Managing risks to critical infrastructure involves preparing for all hazards, reinforcing the resilience of our assets and networks, and staying ever-vigilant and informed. Critical infrastructure security and resilience requires a clear understanding of the risks we face and a whole‐of‐community effort that involves partnership between public, private, and non‐profit sectors.
NDISAC serves as the national defense sector’s principal focal point for all hazards to the sector. Through NDISAC, members develop and continually mature their secure enterprise. NDISAC gives defense industry entities and suppliers the ability to leverage the best security data, tools, services, and best practices available in a high-trust, collaborative industry environment.
Joining NDISAC is one of the best ways organizations can protect themselves and their employees against cyber and physical threats and vulnerabilities while taking an active stance in safeguarding our nation’s critical infrastructure. This November, fill out an NDISAC membership inquiry to learn how you can join the NDISAC!
