What Month is This?

Well, yes, obviously it's November. But it's also Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month (CISRM)! I can't believe not one of you sent me a Happy CISRM card.

November is designated by the federal government as Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month to recognize the importance of strengthening our nation’s infrastructure and enhancing our homeland security and resilience. Our nation's critical infrastructure provides the essential services that support American society. It provides the power we use in our homes, the water we drink, the transportation that gets us from place to place, the bridges that connect us and the communication systems on which we rely to stay in touch with friends and family.

Safeguarding critical infrastructure against growing and evolving threats – both physical and cyber – requires a whole community effort. Read the President’s proclamation and find out what you can do to make your home, business and community more resilient here. Americans can do their part at home, at work and in their local communities by being prepared for all hazards, reporting suspicious activities, and learning more about critical infrastructure security and resilience.
