Welcome to Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month 2017! 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.
NDISAC is committed to raising awareness about the importance of critical infrastructure. Safeguarding both the physical and cyber aspects of critical infrastructure is a national priority that requires public-private partnerships at all levels of government and industry. Critical infrastructure is the power we use in our homes and businesses, the water we drink, the transportation systems that get us from place to place, the first responders and hospitals in our communities, the farms that grow and raise our food, the stores we shop in, and the internet and communication systems we rely on to stay in touch with friends and family. The security and resilience of this critical infrastructure is vital not only to public confidence, but also to the Nation’s safety, prosperity, and well-being.
Managing risks to critical infrastructure involves preparing for all hazards and reinforces the resilience of our assets and networks, and staying ever-vigilant and informed.
This November, help promote Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month by training your employees on cyber awareness, taking part in the Hometown Security effort, engaging with your community partners or supporting long term investments in critical infrastructure.
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!
We all need to play a role in keeping infrastructure strong, secure, and resilient. We can do our part at home, at work, and in our community by being vigilant, incorporating basic safety practices and cybersecurity behaviors into our daily routines, and making sure that if we see something, we say something by reporting suspicious activities to local law enforcement.
