National Security Memorandum on Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience

This week, the White House released National Security Memorandum 22 (NSM-22) to secure and enhance the resilience of U.S. critical infrastructure from all hazards for generations to come.  This is a crucial effort to strengthen and modernize U.S. risk management, including through engagement with international partners and allies.

The White House launched this whole-of-government effort to protect the President’s investments in U.S. infrastructure in the face of threats from our adversaries, the changing climate, strategic competition, and supply chain shocks.  Public-private collaboration is essential to this modernization effort, which also affirms a commitment to delivering minimum security and resilience standards for every critical infrastructure sector.

The Bureau of Counterterrorism is the Department’s lead in the whole-of-government effort to counter terrorism abroad and to secure the United States against foreign terrorist threats.  The Department of State is working to advance the objectives of the NSM through ongoing engagement, collaboration and capacity building efforts with foreign governments, and international organizations, to strengthen the security and resilience of critical infrastructure globally.
