America’s critical infrastructure is complex and diverse, combining systems in both cyberspace and the physical world—from power plants, bridges, and interstates to Federal buildings and the massive electrical grids that power our Nation. During Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month, we resolve to remain vigilant against foreign and domestic threats, and work together to further secure our vital assets, systems, and networks. As President, I have made protecting critical infrastructure a top priority. Earlier this year, I signed a Presidential Policy Directive to shore up our defenses against physical and cyber incidents. In tandem with my Executive Order on cybersecurity, this directive strengthens information sharing within my Administration and between the Federal Government and its many critical infrastructure partners, while also ensuring strong privacy protections. Because of the interconnected nature of our critical infrastructure, my Administration will continue to work with businesses and industry leaders and build on all the great work done to date. With these partners, and in cooperation with all levels of government, we will further enhance the security and resilience of our critical infrastructure. We must continue to strengthen our resilience to threats from all hazards including terrorism and natural disasters, as well as cyber attacks. We must ensure that the Federal Government works with all critical infrastructure partners, including owners and operators, to share information effectively while jointly collaborating before, during, and after an incident. This includes working with infrastructure sectors to harden their assets against extreme weather and other impacts of climate change. Emerging and evolving threats require the engagement of our entire Nation— from all levels of government to the private sector and the American people. This month, as we recognize that safeguarding our critical infrastructure is an economic and security imperative, let each of us do our part to build a more resilient Nation. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with D0 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 November 2013 as Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month.

                Proclamation 9047 of October 31, 2013

                
Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience 
                Month, 2013

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Over the last few decades, our Nation has grown 
                increasingly dependent on critical infrastructure, the 
                backbone of our national and economic security. 
                America's critical infrastructure is complex and 
                diverse, combining systems in both cyberspace and the 
                physical world--from power plants, bridges, and 
                interstates to Federal buildings and the massive 
                electrical grids that power our Nation. During Critical 
                Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month, we 
                resolve to remain vigilant against foreign and domestic 
                threats, and work together to further secure our vital 
                assets, systems, and networks.

                As President, I have made protecting critical 
                infrastructure a top priority. Earlier this year, I 
                signed a Presidential Policy Directive to shore up our 
                defenses against physical and cyber incidents. In 
                tandem with my Executive Order on cybersecurity, this 
                directive strengthens information sharing within my 
                Administration and between the Federal Government and 
                its many critical infrastructure partners, while also 
                ensuring strong privacy protections. Because of the 
                interconnected nature of our critical infrastructure, 
                my Administration will continue to work with businesses 
                and industry leaders and build on all the great work 
                done to date. With these partners, and in cooperation 
                with all levels of government, we will further enhance 
                the security and resilience of our critical 
                infrastructure.

                We must continue to strengthen our resilience to 
                threats from all hazards including terrorism and 
                natural disasters, as well as cyber attacks. We must 
                ensure that the Federal Government works with all 
                critical infrastructure partners, including owners and 
                operators, to share information effectively while 
                jointly collaborating before, during, and after an 
                incident. This includes working with infrastructure 
                sectors to harden their assets against extreme weather 
                and other impacts of climate change.

                Emerging and evolving threats require the engagement of 
                our entire Nation--from all levels of government to the 
                private sector and the American people. This month, as 
                we recognize that safeguarding our critical 
                infrastructure is an economic and security imperative, 
                let each of us do our part to build a more resilient 
                Nation.

                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 November 2013 as 
                Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience 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.

                United States of America the two hundred and thirty-
