CISA Kicks Off Infrastructure Security Month

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) kicks off Infrastructure Security Month 2022. This November, CISA reminds everyone that Infrastructure Security is National Security: Together we can Drive Down Risk, Build Resilience.

Keeping the nation’s critical infrastructure secure is a foundation of our national security. Critical infrastructure spans everything from healthcare, water, and education to chemical, transportation systems, energy, and much more.

The threats to our critical infrastructure—cyber, physical, technological, or natural—run the gamut from weather-induced power outages to sophisticated cyber-attacks. It includes physical threats originating here at home, as well as malicious cyber activities launched from across the globe by adversaries seeking ways to disrupt or destroy the essential services we rely on for public health and safety, our economic well-being, and national security.

Throughout November, CISA will bring the world of infrastructure security and resilience to life with interviews and blogs featuring CISA staff and external industry partners, as well as other activities. We encourage everyone to visit CISA’s Infrastructure Security Month web page for more information and resources. Be sure to follow CISA on social media and join the #Infrastructure and #InfrastructureResilience conversation throughout the month for resources, tools, and tips you can use to help identify and reduce risk to infrastructure facilities, their internet and operational technology systems, employees, visitors and more.
