The CISA Personal Security Considerations fact sheet encourages critical infrastructure owners and their personnel to remain vigilant and report suspicious behavior that individuals may exhibit in order to thwart an attack. It also contains several easily implementable security measures that can mitigate threats to personal safety.
Organizations involved in the development and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine should take proactive measures to enhance their overall physical security posture. To achieve secure and resilient vaccine distribution, workers along the supply chain and vaccine recipients should use available resources to assess suggested mitigation methods against physical security attacks. To help meet this need, CISA created the COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Physical Security Measures infographic.
The adoption and integration of Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices has led to an increasingly interconnected mesh of cyber-physical systems (CPS), which expands the attack surface and blurs the once clear functions of cybersecurity and physical security.
A successful cyber or physical attack on industrial control systems and networks can disrupt operations or even deny critical services to society.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Convergence Action Guide describes the complex threat environment created by increasingly interconnected cyber-physical systems, and the impacts that this interconnectivity has on an organization’s cybersecurity and physical security functions. It also provides information that organizations can consider to adopt a holistic cyber-physical security approach through a flexible framework.
CISA, NASCAR, Daytona International Speedway and Local Partners Conduct Joint Exercise to Keep DAYTONA 500 Fans Safe
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), NASCAR, the Daytona International Speedway, state and local first responders, law enforcement officials, and local businesses held a tabletop exercise today to test response plans around hypothetical public safety incidents on the day of the DAYTONA 500.
This report provides an update on the ICT Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) Task Force’s progress in Year Two to advance meaningful partnerships and analysis around supply chain security and resilience. The report summarizes the work of the Task Force’s five working groups to address challenges to information sharing, threat analysis, qualified bidder and qualified manufacturer lists, vendor assurance, and impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on ICT supply chains.
