NEW YORK, NY (November 4, 2013) – With November being declared ‘Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month,’ by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), EIA, Inc. (EIA) has committed to help build awareness of the importance of securing our nation’s critical infrastructure.

 

Securing critical infrastructure and ensuring its resilience is a shared responsibility of federal, state, local, and private sector partners, as well as individual citizens. Just as we all rely on critical infrastructure, we must all play an active role in keeping it strong, secure, and resilient. Because of this, EIA will be taking the time this month to increasingly focus on information security as well as reaffirming their commitment to keep critical infrastructure (including customer data), safe and secure. 

 

“It’s important to expand and reinforce critical infrastructure security. We have to continue to invest in physical and cyber risk management products and plans, especially when companies, municipalities and government bodies are increasingly relying on and sharing common data,” remarked George Engel, EIA’s Founder and Chairman, and [former] Deputy Director of Staff for Information Technology at the Department of Homeland Security / U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.

 

With the November declaration of Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month, President Barak Obama said, “We must continue to strengthen our resilience to threats from all hazards including terrorism and natural disasters, as well as cyber attacks.” Adam Roth, EIA’s V.P. of Technology said, “The President said it best, we must get prepared for all contingencies—and remain prepared, all the time.”

 

The nation's critical infrastructure provides essential services that underpin American society and sustain the American way of life. EIA plans to discuss with its employees, what other corporations should with theirs: the importance of critical infrastructure security and resilience; having a plan for business continuity; sharing threat and incident information; reporting suspicious activity; and preparing for all hazards at home and at work.

 

Based in New York City, EIA is one of America’s leading Networked Technologies integrators. EIA provides solutions to customers which include covert and open surveillance, video synopsis and analytics, video archiving, access control, lock-down systems, hazardous material tracking, Ethernet, fiber optic and copper cabling, and providing set-up and management of networks at general, high-risk, and other special events.
