Preparing for Cyber Attacks: The CISA Online Resource Hub

In the current climate created by the viable threat of a Russian cyberattack on the U.S., if you are preparing your organization or your individual household to mitigate risk please see OODA CTO Bob Gourley’s Guide For Business: Final checks for reducing risks in the face of nation-state cyber-attacks based on White House advisory.  In the post, Bob itemizes OODA recommendations for:

  • Large Businesses/Large Federal Government Agencies
  • Small To Mid-Sized Businesses/State and Local Governments;  and
  • Individuals

Free Cybersecurity Services and Tools

In late February, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) launched a new hub that organizations can use to discover free public and private sector resources to strengthen their cybersecurity.

“Many organizations, both public and private, are target-rich and resource-poor. The resources on this list will help such organizations improve their security posture, which is particularly critical in the current heightened threat environment.  This initial catalog will grow and mature as we include additional free tools from other partners,  CISA Director Jen Easterly said in a statement.“

The advice right now from both CISA and the FBI is that all organizations should significantly lower their threshold for reporting anomalous cyber activity, contacting your FBI field office or CISA directly with an incident report if you in any way feel that you or your organization has identified viable threat activity.
