BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
During Critical Infrastructure Protection Month, we
highlight the vast network of systems and structures that
sustain the vigor and vitality of our Nation. Critical
infrastructure includes the assets, networks, and functions —
both physical and virtual — essential to the security, economic
welfare, public health, and safety of the United States.
The Department of Homeland Security leads an
unprecedented national partnership dedicated to the security
and resilience of our critical infrastructure. The National
Infrastructure Protection Plan integrates a multitude of diverse
stakeholders — Federal, State, local, territorial, and tribal
governments; private sector critical infrastructure owners and
operators; first responders; and the public — to identify and
protect our infrastructure from hazards or attack. These
critical infrastructure partnerships continue to build their
information-sharing capacity and develop actions that strengthen
our Nation’s preparedness, response capabilities, and recovery
My Administration is committed to delivering the necessary
information, tools, and resources to areas where critical
infrastructure exists in order to maintain and enhance its
security and resilience. I have proposed a bold plan for
renewing and expanding our Nation’s infrastructure, including
its critical infrastructure, in the coming years. Additionally,
we must work to empower communities, an integral part of
critical infrastructure security, to work with local
infrastructure owners and operators, which will make our
physical and cyber infrastructure more resilient. Working
together, we can raise awareness of the important role our
critical infrastructure plays in sustaining the American way
of life and develop actions to protect these vital resources.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the
United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in
me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do
hereby proclaim December 2010 as Critical Infrastructure
Protection Month. I call upon the people of the United States
to recognize the importance of protecting our Nation’s resources
and to observe this month with appropriate events and training
to enhance our national security and resilience.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this
thirtieth day of November, in the year of our Lord
two thousand ten, and of the Independence of the United States
of America the two hundred and thirty-fifth.
