ABSTRACT

CISA Global   [open pdf - 5MB]

From the Document: "In today's globally and interconnected world, we confront a wide array of serious risks and threats to our critical infrastructure, systems, assets, functions, and citizens. State and non-state actor adversaries and competitors seek to advance their objectives through a variety of tactics, including subtle actions that significantly weaken the foundations of U.S. power, degrade societal functions, undermine trust in institutions, and increase adversaries' ability to exploit vulnerabilities and undermine the functions of critical infrastructure. Extreme weather events, natural hazards, terrorism, and hostile state actors are among the threats to critical functions, the 'systems of systems,' and systemic risks that can have global, cascading effects. As networked devices are further integrated into lives and businesses, their vulnerabilities provide additional attack vectors for nation-states and foreign adversaries. [...] With these critical mission sets, CISA [Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency] must do more to address today's complex challenges and to prepare for future threats. CISA can leverage its global network to strengthen partner capacity and to build a better, collective practice posture and response to urgent threats that are particularly critical to U.S. national security interests. CISA is committed to promoting an open, interoperable, reliable and secure interconnected world within a global, operational and policy environment where network defenders and risk managers can collectively prevent and mitigate threats to critical infrastructure. We invite our global partners to join us in the fight to secure today and to defend tomorrow."
