It’s our birthday! #CISAgov was established on November 16, 2018. From elections to COVID-19 to natural disasters and more, year two has been action-packed. Let’s take a trip down memory lane…
Informed by #cyber intelligence and real-world events, we issued several insight products, providing background on #cyber threats, #vulnerabilities, and mitigation activities: #InfoSec
One key insight was in in January when we warned partners about potential Iranian retaliation against U.S. organizations—and advised them on how to assess and strengthen their physical & cyber security. This is the kind of rapid information-sharing we aim for! #InfoSecurity
As #COVID19 changed our #infrastructure landscape, we issued guidance to help states and localities identify and prioritize #essential workers, resources, and safety concerns. We continue to update this guidance:… #InfrastructureSecurity
#COVID19 also had #cybersecurity implications. We issued an alert w/@FBI about foreign actors targeting valuable IP & public health data related to vaccines, treatments, & testing for COVID-related research:… #InfoSecurity #InformationSecurity
Like many organizations, our team of #CISAzens began full-time #telework in March. This shift from offices to #WorkFromHome presented new challenges and security concerns for organizations. In response, we developed a suite of resources to help: #WFH
Another big milestone for the year: We unveiled the official #CISAgov logo in April. The design incorporates the core values we hold—especially our commitment to #DefendTodaySecurityTomorrow. Learn more about the logo imagery:…
We’ve continued to work to promote good faith security research and coordinated disclosure across the federal civilian government. In August, we released a Request for Proposal for a #Cyber #QSMO Vulnerability Disclosure Policy platform. Learn more:
Later that same month, we released our strategy for ensuring the security and resilience of #FifthGeneration (#5G) technologies:…. Innovation leads to tremendous possibility and security risk. We’re working to look ahead and #SecureTomorrow.
Our 3rd Annual National Cybersecurity Summit welcomed over 15,000 virtual attendees to a four-day discussion on cyber insights, digital transformation, diversity in #cybersecurity, and #election security. Re-live the event: #CISAsummit
Tasked in 2017 with the critical mission of #ElectionSecurity, we worked with partners at every level of government to #Portect2020 and ensure that American voters decide American elections. Learn more about this effort: #Election2020
Increase #ransomware attacks in the fall lead to us developing joint #CISAgov and MS-ISAC resources. is a one-stop-shop of customer-centric tools to prevent, protect against, and respond to ransomware. #Malware #InfoSecurity #InfoSec
So what’s next for #CISAgov? As the nation’s risk advisor, we will continue to work tirelessly to defend against today’s threats and ensure a more secure and resilient infrastructure for the future.
We’re grateful for our partners—in the public and private sector—for their collaboration on #InfrastructureSecurity. We plan to boost our engagement efforts, bring more voices to the table, and continue to seek out innovative strategies to secure critical infrastructure.
Our 2nd year brought unforeseen challenges, and we can’t know everything that year three has in store for us, but we’re standing ready to #DefendTodaySecureTomorrow.
