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. The security of our Nation is my top priority, and my Administration is dedicated to preserving and fortifying the systems that support our daily lives. Guided by our Cybersecurity Framework, we are working to protect our critical infrastructure from cyber threats, while promoting an open and reliable cyberspace. In the face of a diverse set of physical risks to our infrastructure—from extreme weather and the impacts of climate change to health pandemics, accidents, and acts of terrorism—we are taking steps to reduce our vulnerabilities. And because the majority of our critical infrastructure is owned and operated by private companies, we are encouraging the private sector to recognize their shared responsibility. As part of our National Infrastructure Protection Plan, we are finding new ways we can strengthen our public-private partnerships to bolster our systems and networks and to better manage risks. While we cannot always predict the ways in which our infrastructure will be tested, by harnessing an integrated approach to a range of threats and modernizing our cyber and physical infrastructure, we can ensure that one event does not compromise the stability of our entire system. When we invest in 21st century infrastructure, we not only increase our resilience, but also create jobs and expand opportunity for hardworking Americans.

Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience 
                Month, 2014

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                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.

                The security of our Nation is my top priority, and my 
                Administration is dedicated to preserving and 
                fortifying the systems that support our daily lives. 
                Guided by our Cybersecurity Framework, we are working 
                to protect our critical infrastructure from cyber 
                threats, while promoting an open and reliable 
                cyberspace. In the face of a diverse set of physical 
                risks to our infrastructure--from extreme weather and 
                the impacts of climate change to health pandemics, 
                accidents, and acts of terrorism--we are taking steps 
                to reduce our vulnerabilities. And because the majority 
                of our critical infrastructure is owned and operated by 
                private companies, we are encouraging the private 
                sector to recognize their shared responsibility. As 
                part of our National Infrastructure Protection Plan, we 
                are finding new ways we can strengthen our public-
                private partnerships to bolster our systems and 
                networks and to better manage risks.

                While we cannot always predict the ways in which our 
                infrastructure will be tested, by harnessing an 
                integrated approach to a range of threats and 
                modernizing our cyber and physical infrastructure, we 
                can ensure that one event does not compromise the 
                stability of our entire system. When we invest in 21st 
                century infrastructure, we not only increase our 
                resilience, but also create jobs and expand opportunity 
                for hardworking Americans. That is why earlier this 
                year we launched the Build America Investment 
                Initiative to improve our roads, water systems, 
                electrical grid, and other vital systems. By 
                encouraging innovative financing and increased public-
                private collaboration, we can build a revitalized, 
                efficient, and secure American infrastructure.

                In today's interconnected world, we must all remain 
                dedicated to identifying and deterring threats and 
                hazards to our Nation's critical infrastructure and to 
                mitigating the consequences of incidents that do occur. 
                This month, let us resolve to safeguard and strengthen 
                the systems we rely on every day and to support first-
                class infrastructure that can sustain America's role as 
                a leader on the world stage.

                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 2014 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.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                thirty-first day of October, in the year of our Lord 
                two thousand fourteen, and of the Independence of the 
                United States of America the two hundred and thirty-
                ninth.
