Critical infrastructure systems are those physical and virtual assets that are essential to our physical security, economic security, or public health. We need resilient, well-maintained critical infrastructure so that all Americans have access to safe food, reliable electricity, clean water, convenient transportation systems, quality public health and medical services, and instant communication every day. The natural disasters our country has experienced in recent months provide a sobering reminder of the necessity for secure, reliable, and resilient infrastructure. Damage from wind, flood, and fire has ravaged communities and industries, damaging electric grids and transmission lines, dams, roads, cellular towers, hospitals, nursing homes, and businesses. America’s critical infrastructure is among the most secure and resilient in the world, but as recent events have shown, we must continue to invest in research and development to ensure the vital services it provides withstand complex and dynamic threats. Our critical infrastructure also faces threats from capacity-induced strain, terrorist attacks, accidents, pandemics, space weather, and cyberattacks. To confront these diverse challenges systematically, we must take steps to enhance our Nation’s economic, intellectual, and technological leadership. My Administration will help our businesses invest in needed capital and research and development by reducing burdensome regulations and enacting comprehensive tax reform. We will also renew our Nation’s focus on ensuring that the next generation has the education and training, particularly in science, technology, engineering, and math, required to meet the known and unknown threats of the future.

Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience 
                Month, 2017

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                During Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience 
                Month, we emphasize the importance of safeguarding our 
                Nation's infrastructure. Critical infrastructure 
                systems are those physical and virtual assets that are 
                essential to our physical security, economic security, 
                or public health. We need resilient, well-maintained 
                critical infrastructure so that all Americans have 
                access to safe food, reliable electricity, clean water, 
                convenient transportation systems, quality public 
                health and medical services, and instant communication 
                every day.

                The natural disasters our country has experienced in 
                recent months provide a sobering reminder of the 
                necessity for secure, reliable, and resilient 
                infrastructure. Damage from wind, flood, and fire has 
                ravaged communities and industries, damaging electric 
                grids and transmission lines, dams, roads, cellular 
                towers, hospitals, nursing homes, and businesses. 
                America's critical infrastructure is among the most 
                secure and resilient in the world, but as recent events 
                have shown, we must continue to invest in research and 
                development to ensure the vital services it provides 
                withstand complex and dynamic threats.

                Our critical infrastructure also faces threats from 
                capacity-induced strain, terrorist attacks, accidents, 
                pandemics, space weather, and cyberattacks. To confront 
                these diverse challenges systematically, we must take 
                steps to enhance our Nation's economic, intellectual, 
                and technological leadership. My Administration will 
                help our businesses invest in needed capital and 
                research and development by reducing burdensome 
                regulations and enacting comprehensive tax reform. We 
                will also renew our Nation's focus on ensuring that the 
                next generation has the education and training, 
                particularly in science, technology, engineering, and 
                math, required to meet the known and unknown threats of 
                the future.

                This month, we recommit ourselves to keeping America 
                strong, prosperous, and resilient. We highlight the 
                importance of infrastructure in our daily lives and 
                challenge all Americans to help protect, preserve, and 
                strengthen these indispensable national capabilities.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, 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 2017 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 
                infrastructure and to observe this month with 
                appropriate measures to enhance our national security 
                and resilience.
