CDSE Pulse: Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience (Volume 2, Issue 11)   [open pdf - 567KB]

From the Document: "There are '16 critical infrastructure sectors' whose assets, systems, and networks (whether physical or virtual) are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, the economy, public health or safety, or any combination thereof. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) promotes Infrastructure Security Month (ISM), an annual effort in November to educate and engage all levels of government, infrastructure owners and operators, and the American public about the vital role critical infrastructure plays in the nation's wellbeing. [...] Shining a spotlight on critical infrastructure is crucial due to modern, sophisticated cybercrimes that put the U.S. at risk. Earlier this year, major cyberattacks caused issues up and down the supply chain. Since our nation relies on critical infrastructure for health, energy, communications, and other vital services, it is equally important that everyone understand their role and take action to ensure our critical infrastructure remains strong, secure, and functional."
