Episode 24: Cyberattacks against critical infrastructure can have detrimental impacts on everyday life. The past few months, we’ve seen example after example of cyberattacks causing gas and food shortages as well as transportation service disruptions. CISA, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, is a standalone US federal agency established to advance the Department of Homeland Security’s national security mission. It seeks to reduce and eliminate threats to US critical physical and cyber infrastructure. CISA recently confirmed Jen Easterly, a former US Army officer and member of Tailored Access Operations, as its new Director. In this episode, special guests Brian McCord and James Correnti discuss Jen Easterly’s Confirmation, CISA’s mission, and a new catalog of Bad Practices that the Agency is actively developing.
