President Trump’s National Security Strategy – A GREAT Step in the Right Direction!

January 8, 2018

This is Tommy Waller with the Secure The Grid Minute. 

Just days before Christmas President Trump announced his new National Security Strategy.  This strategy is a significant and positive departure from those published by his predecessors.  Important elements of this strategy give hope to those of us who care deeply about protecting America’s most critical infrastructure – the Electric Grid. 

First, the strategy admits vulnerability to this infrastructure by cyber, physical, and electromagnetic attack.  Admitting that you have a problem is the first step to fixing it.   

Second, the strategy calls for defending our infrastructure against these types of attacks and, specifically, for strengthening our nation’s missile defense – a call to action that is long overdue.

Finally, the strategy calls for America to “build a culture of preparedness.” Look no further than Puerto Rico to prove that resilience and preparedness is an absolutely must for all Americans today.
