PRESIDENTIAL PROCLAMATION — CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE SECURITY AND RESILIENCE MONTH, 2014
Essential to our national security and economic growth, America’s critical infrastructure — from our power plants and pipelines to our hospitals and highways — supports the physical and virtual systems that underpin American society. In a changing world, the increased interdependence of our country’s most vital resources and networks has created new opportunities for growth and innovation, but it has also led to greater risk and vulnerability. During Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month, we reflect on the important role our infrastructure plays in building a safe and prosperous Nation, and we recommit to strengthening and protecting these important assets.
