Strategies for Securing Cyberspace and Protection of Infrastructure
Statement by the President
Strategy to Secure Cyberspace and the National
Strategy for the Physical Protection of Critical Infrastructures
and Key Assets will help us protect America from those
who would do us harm, whether through physical destruction or
by attacking our infrastructures through cyberspace.
These strategies recognize that the majority of our critical
assets and infrastructures, such as those in the banking, telecommunications,
energy, and transportation sectors, are privately owned and operated.
The strategies outline Federal efforts and State and local roles
in securing the Nation's critical infrastructures, and identify
opportunities for partnership with the private sector. The Department
of Homeland Security will take the lead in accomplishing many
of the objectives of these strategies. Other departments and agencies
also have important roles to play. I encourage everyone, government
at all levels, industry, and private citizens to continue to work
together to make our nation secure.
