Keeping Infrastructure Strong and Secure
November is Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month, a nationwide effort to raise awareness and reaffirm the commitment to keep our Nation’s critical infrastructure secure and resilient. Kay Plumbing has committed to building awareness of the importance of critical infrastructure. “In this day and age, the quality of your water is of up most importance. The health and well-being of your family depends on a healthy water supply. We at Kay Plumbing help make sure the local drinking water is secure by ensuring all plumbing products are lead and contaminate free. For extra protection we also suggest a Water Filtration system for your home of business.”
During November, we focus on engaging and educating public and private sector partners to raise awareness about the systems and resources that support our daily lives, underpin our society, and sustain our way of life. Safeguarding both the physical and cyber aspects of critical infrastructure is a national priority that requires public-private partnerships at all levels of government and industry. We know critical infrastructure as the power we use in our homes and businesses, the water we drink, the transportation systems that get us from place to place, the first responders and hospitals in our communities, the farms that grow and raise our food, the stores we shop in, and the Internet and communication systems we rely on to stay in touch with friends and family. The security and resilience of this critical infrastructure is vital not only to public confidence, but also to the Nation’s safety, prosperity, and well-being.
Managing risks to critical infrastructure involves preparing for all hazards and reinforces the resilience of our assets and networks, and staying ever-vigilant and informed. This November, help promote Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month by training your employees on cyber awareness, taking part in the Hometown Security effort, engaging with your community partners or supporting long term investments in critical infrastructure. We all need to play a role in keeping infrastructure strong, secure, and resilient. We can do our part at home, at work, and in our community by being vigilant, incorporating basic safety practices and cyber security behaviors into our daily routines, and making sure that if we see something, we say something by reporting suspicious activities to local law enforcement.
