Biden Administration, CISA, FBI, and NSA Respond to Cybersecurity Threats to Critical Infrastructure Posed by Russia
On March 21, 2022, President Biden issued a statement in response to evolving intelligence that Russia is exploring options for malicious cyberattacks against the United States. The statement highlights the measures taken by the Administration to strengthen cyber defenses within the federal government and, to the extent that it has authority, within critical infrastructure sectors.
Additionally, President Biden called on private sector critical infrastructure owners and operators to accelerate and enhance their cybersecurity measures, urging them to take advantage of public-private partnerships and initiatives, including those administered by the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). Appended to President Biden’s statement was a Fact Sheet, which outlines specific steps that companies can take to bolster cybersecurity across the nation, and refers readers to various resources compiled by CISA, as part of a cybersecurity campaign.
