The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) released a ‘Shields Up’ Advisory. Within here they note that cyber threats have increased substantially, most notably from the Russian government. They list a number of highly valuable cybersecurity hardening recommendations that all organizations should take very seriously.
The CISA also notes that right now it’s very important to empower CISOs to strengthen the security of your organization.
“Empower Chief Information Security Officers (CISO): In nearly every organization, security improvements are weighed against cost and operational risks to the business. In this heightened threat environment, senior management should empower CISOs by including them in the decision-making process for risk to the company, and ensure that the entire organization understands that security investments are a top priority in the immediate term.”
We strongly suggest that all of our clients review and follow the recommendations of the CISA, verify you’ve met or exceeded all of the CISA advisory’s recommendations. If you need any assistance or advice on how to meet their objectives please let us know.
