Information Sharing is the Best Defense Against Cyber Attacks for Federal Agencies
With a continuously expanding attack surface, it is impossible to know every single cyber threat or attack vector. Federal agencies have found the best defense is inside a culture of sharing. The only way agencies and industries can try to stay ahead of the ever-evolving cyber threats is by acting as a team and realizing their survival against hackers is one of mutual trust and collaboration.
In this report, a range of cyber efforts are discussed: from the EINSTEIN program’s artificial intelligence that hastens threat sharing, to the Cybersecurity Vulnerability Identification and Notification Act that would compel internet service providers to turn over contact information for entities with critical cyber vulnerabilities.
Points of discussion:
- SBA’s (Small Business Administration) continuous diagnostics and mitigation (CDM) pilot
- The key aspects of CISA’s insider threat roadmap
- How state and local elections approach cybersecurity
- Protecting U.S. cyber assets in a high threat environment
- How IT-ISAC helps agencies with securing national critical functions
